Brussels-based alternative R&B/soul duo YellowStraps have shared their new track, ‘Take Over’ lifted from their just-released EP Goldress, which dropped on 7 February 2020.
Setting a fast tempo from the start ‘Take Over’ leads with a jazzy electric guitar that keeps the listener enraptured throughout the track. Pairing the dynamic guitar style with a rhythmic set of drums and spacious pauses creates the equipoise between complex and boisterous.
The Murenzi brothers reveal a little about the complexities behind the track: ‘Take Over’ describes the toxic situation in a relationship where one party is overly dependant on the other. It takes the form of a direct conversation in which one of the parties explains to the other that it is essential to have their own balanced path and way of life, instead of relying on the others’.
