In a time where distance and uncertainty are an everyday reality, 'Never' is a nostalgic power ballad about a distant (virtual) love, an ocean in between, and not giving up hope when love is found, no matter what obstacles might come our way.
'Never' is a powerful and emotive Synthwave ballad driven by a pulsating bass line and huge drum fills wonderfully crafted by Syntronix, matched with LAU's characteristic heartfelt vocals.
Well who hasn't cried on the bathroom floor?! I certainly have. The moment I heard this incredible song by MUNA I immediately knew what I wanted to do with the arrangement. Richard X and I worked to give the track more of a pop sensibility while keeping the emotional resonance of the brilliant original. The lyric is just so unique and I found the line 'Crying on the bathroom floor, tearing off the dress I wore' so interesting for a man to sing. What's nice now is that times are different and no one even questions it, but it still makes it interesting for me as a man who does wear dresses sometimes and has cried on the bathroom floor. Never have the two met before - but who knows what's to come!
