Goldroom - Embrace

Are you sitting down? I’ve got some shocking news for you. You’re gonna wanna sit down for this: Snapchat is not just for sending/viewing dick pics anymore.

Still with us? Good, 'cause here comes the good news: Los Angeles based electro pop dude Josh Legg, better known as Goldroom, has released the first single off his forthcoming It's Like You Never Went Away EP on the social media app. “Embrace (ft. George Maple)” is a wondrous piece of bit candy, seemingly incorporating the best aspects of electro pop over the past three decades into a singular, concise jam. Co-written with George Maple, who also provides her tremendous vocals for this track, “Embrace” is synth-pop perfection. Originally released in 2013 with Ariela Jacobs on vox, this version of the song is vastly superior. Find out why below:

 

GOLDROOM “EMBRACE (FT. GEORGE MAPLE)”

It's Like You Never Went Away EP is out now on Downtown Records. The project was done in collaboration with Snapchat, so there’s a four-minute videos for each song, which you can view on the app. In their totality they’re supposed to be a 17 minute short film. I’ve yet to see these videos, but I imagine it’s worth jumping on Snapchat and wading through all the dong shots to watch.

In closing, here are the lyrics for Goldroom “Embrace (ft. George Maple)”

did you have to leave so soon?
didn't wanna make you run around
'cause it seems i've tripped up once again
i'm lying down again
staring up in to a cloud of questions, why
blurry visions of tired eyes
got a lot of things that i need to say
got a lot of things that i need to
find a way to rest my head
just try to clean my eyes
why'd i let you walk away
why'd i let you walk away
'cause i'm thinking it's you

i've been thinking 'bout you everyday
i see you walking round my way
so easy to get to your embrace
it's like you never went away
glow, like you can't escape the rays
you're brave enough to save the day
love hoping we can make it fade
come on through to your embrace

did you have to leave so soon?
didn't wanna make you run around
'cause it seems i've tripped up once again
now i'm lying down again
staring up in to a cloud of questions, why
blurry visions of tired eyes
got a lot of things that i need to say
got a lot of things that i need to
find a way to rest my head
just try to clean my eyes
why'd i let you walk away
why'd i let you walk away
'cause i'm thinking it's you

i've been thinking 'bout you everyday
i see you walking round my way
so easy get to your embrace
it's like you never went away
glow, like you can't escape the rays
you're brave enough to save the day
love hoping we can make it fade
come on through to your embrace

i've been thinking 'bout you everyday
i see you, i can run my way
so easy to get to your embrace
it's like you never went away
glow, like you can't escape the rays
you're brave enough to save the day
love hoping we can make it fade
come on through to your embrace

i've been thinking 'bout you everyday
i see you, i can run my way
so easy get to your embrace
it's like you never went away
glow, like you can't escape the rays
you're brave enough to save the day
love hoping we can make it fade
come on through to your embrace
