Canadian music-makers Shagabond and Noah have combined to release their sumptuous new collaborative single “Arouse”. The resulting track is a sizzling combination of effortlessly brisk beat-work and smooth vocal melodies. The pair met in 2014, when Noah’s dad and Shagabond’s Aunt began dating, this unlikely genesis has spawned an exciting sonic matchup. The fruits of which can be heard below.
“We decided to meet up in Toronto for some studio time last September. I had a bunch of beats I had been working on over the summer that I was really excited to show Noah, but only one really stood out at the time. During an overnight session at a low-key studio in Toronto’s East end, we basically hashed out the entire track’s production, but couldn’t get the lyrics down.” — Shagabond
