Arizona - Cross My Mind Pt. 2 (Feat. Kiiara)

As the eclipse of the century rolls across the world, We Are: The Guard is rather busy seeking for the next great song. Today's selection is named "Cross My Mind Pt. 2," created by an East Coast trio called Arizona.

 

ARIZONA - CROSS MY MIND PT. 2 (FEAT. KIIARA)

spotify With a band name Arizona, you would think these guys are from the Southwest, but Nate, Zach, and David honed their musical abilities at the Berklee College of Music and Emerson College, embracing the same East Coast feel that they possessed living out of an apartment in Boston and growing up in Jersey. In their mixtape featuring several versions of "Cross My Mind," this track with the Part 2 slapped on it employs the supplemental vocals of Kiiara, a Midwest singer who is currently signed to Atlantic Records. Together with powerful, purposeful beats, "Cross My Mind Pt. 2" is the perfect storm. With a catchy hook and loaded with an energetic prose, it matches the current sound of contemporary alternative that features as much digital composition as stuff in the electronic genre. It is fizzy and fun like an Italian soda. Non-alcoholic and goes down smooth with plenty of pleasantness. But like the choosing of carbonated beverages, it is all up to personal tastes.

If you like the indie flavor of bands like Bleachers, you have to give Arizona a good, hard listen. You will surely enjoy the ride, and probably come back for more.
