Who can argue against starting your week off right with an upbeat synth jam worthy of both weekend debauchery and weekday pick-me-ups? Art director turned synth-producer Com Truise fires up Maroon 5’s sophomore single from their fourth studio release, “Hands All Over.” It’s a down-tempo electronic jam that is – in a word – sexy.
Adam Levine’s falsetto exudes sex. He has the vocal ability to simultaneously sound like he’s making love and shallowly hooking-up. Not to mention he’s an alt-pop-rock adonis. The driving guitar line is deep and low and seamlessly blends into Com Truise’s animalistic synth atmosphere. Hints of chopped n’ screwed bits sneak their way into Levine’s performance adding to the track’s dangerous undertones.
Perhaps it’s too early in the week to be thinking about these themes, but this track feels like it’d appropriately fit on a dirty, sensual, libido-fueled playlist; smack between tracks from The Weeknd and Goldfrapp. While it may be Monday, it’s no excuse to not let your mind wander a little bit into fantasy land. Oddly, this track’s got me all inspired to take advantage of the week rather than let the week take advantage of me. May it inspire you in its own way today, too.
