We all know stress. We all know that feeling of having way too many things that need to be done and roughly a quarter of the time that we need to do it. It's a s**** sensation, but it's part of life. And sometimes you need music with a zen quality. I love blaring Rage Against the Machine's Battle for Los Angeles
as much as the next dude who was a teenager in the aughts, but, when life gets me that angry as often as it does, I don't always need more aggression from Zach De La Rocha in my day. And the zen pop of Pushing Static
is exactly what I need to decompress after a stressful week.
Combining the soft rock guitars of 90s alt pop with tranquil synths and a beautiful but understated voice, "Let Yourself Go Where Your Heart Goes" by Pushing Static -- which we're proud to be premiering -- is a gorgeous reminder of what happens when pop music has the patience to not try and overwhelm your senses and trusts in the ability of an elegant melody to guide you where you need to go. If you like The Verve or early Savage Garden (and if you don't like early Savage Garden, what's wrong with you?), this is the track for you.
