MUST LISTEN: Seven Lions, SLANDER, & Dabin team up, strike big on ‘First Time’
Fresh off the release of his 3-track Start Again EP, Seven Lions has been on the prowl with his recent output of new music. He strikes often and makes big catches with his ferocious melodic grip. Now the Ophelia Records label head has joined up with Gud Vibrations bosses SLANDER and fellow heavy/melodic aficionado Dabin for an emotionally poignant love ballad, “First Time,” out now on his own imprint.
Featuring the soothing vocals of Dylan Matthew, “First Time” delivers blissful melodies, dreamy basslines and colorful emotions, making for an immersive listening journey and full-on cathartic release. The single represents the perfect artistic union of all three producer’s styles, combing meaningful lyrics with lush soundscapes and a dance-floor ready bassline. It also arrives at perfect time with Seven Lions having recently launched his Journey 2 tour and SLANDER having kicked off their Headbangers Ball tour, both of which fans can expect to hear the melodic gem live and on the road for their first time.
