warner case – thereforeyou

It’s guaranteed to be a good day when new warner case comes through my emails, so it seems like a promising Thursday is in store. This new one called “thereforeyou” is a total ear worm, yet it’s so lowkey and understated at the same time. It has such a nice groove that hits all the right pockets and the guitar from Youngr totally sweetens the deal. I also appreciate hearing warner case’s vocals without any effects; I loved the deep approach on “upsidown” but this one feels way more personal from top to bottom…it’s better suited for dimly lit bedrooms and balconies looking over cities at night instead of dance floors.

It has me thinking about some of my favorite quiet nighttime memories. One of them was looking out from my friend’s New York City apartment and seeing all the old, beautiful architecture towering over busy streets. Another was watching the twinkling lights of Los Angeles at night from my apartment years ago with headphones in, totally appreciating the moment from a mindful and present standpoint. Thinking back on it, “thereforeyou” really would have been a nice addition to that soundtrack…hopefully there’s more chances to make similar moments soon.

warner case – upsidown

warner case (who was previously known as Jay xero) has kicked off his journey under a new name with a fucking doozy of a track. “upsidown” is a super fitting title since it feels like a twisting and turning rollercoaster ride seamlessly transitioning from sparse spoken word atmospherics to an insane house instrumental that’s like a gritty call for everyone to get on the damn dancefloor stat. The reverberating vocals during the hook (my personal favorite moment of the song) conjure up a woozy experience that’s like the soundtrack to a hazy party POV of spinning around the club in circles between drinks.

I also love the intangible confidence and swagger that runs through this track’s veins. It’s a commanding presence that makes it impossible to turn away from “upsidown.” I also realized that this could make for killer runway music which makes sense considering warner case is also a model. Tthe dude has his finger on the pulse of multiple artistic scenes where coolness is key and it shows through his music’s catchy sensibilities. Considering how dope this track sounds on a pair of headphones I can’t wait to hear it in a proper setting through some killer speakers surrounded by good people for a night full of good times.
