MEMBA – Overrated ft. Levus Alone
MEMBA are fast establishing a sound that’s fresh, cinematic and unmistakably theirs and are back to stake their claim with their newest single. Now ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective brings the New York-duo back into the studio on a mesmerizing new track, titled “Overrated,” featuring the soulful vocals of Levus Alone. MEMBA’s Will Curry and Ishaan Chaudhary have stirred up some buzz with their futuristic and eclectic style on their SAGA I and SAGA II releases over the past couple of years, now they bring their production talents to the forefront yet again with “Overrated.”
Drenched in dynamic electronic melodies, “Overrated” offers up a hefty dose of escapism with help from long time co-writer, Levus Alone. With a chugging trap instrumental at its heart, the MEMBA boys deftly manage to restrain the instrumental, balancing its heaviness with the angelic, pitch-shifted vocals from their mysterious British counterpart.
This song is a rare blend of sounds, it’s got equal parts r&b, grime, trap, and mirchi. It’s a combo we haven’t heard before and we love how the two stark flavors mix up so nicely. We wrote it pre-pandemic. Levus Alone had flown in from London to kick it with us in Brooklyn. He wanted to see Times Square and that but we never made it out the studio.”MEMBA
MEMBA is an act that leaves you expecting the unexpected. Previous sounds include the powerful “Strider,” “Meet Freedom” to “Walls Down” and the pair incorporates a wealth of inspiration and influences into their work.
