Where melancholia glides into euphoria

Norwegian duo Seeb team up with Bastille in their latest collab single “Grip” – an eccentric piece that captures the feeling of escapism. The track possesses the melodic finesse of Seeb and soars with the vocal vigor of Bastille, making it an immediate hook:

In regards to “Grip,” Seeb explained “It ended up as a creature of its own, with DNA from both Seeb and Bastille. We were all very much involved in the process even though we were all in different places, at one point even in 3 different continents! We hope it will show the fans a different side to Seeb as we begin to explore new paths.”

Bastille’s Dan Smith added, “Seeb turned our big, messy guitar song into something new and completely different, but it still feels wholly in keeping with the escapist theme of the song: the euphoria and horrors of a late, late night.  When the drop happens it’s like you get sucked back into the weirdness of the night or like a door’s been opened into the clubby world of Seeb. Their production takes it somewhere we never would have expected.”

Comprised of Simen Eriksrud and Espen Berg, Seeb broke into the scene with their remix of Mike Posner’s “I Took A Pill In Ibiza.” You probably heard of Bastille from their previous hits such as “Happier” with Marshmello. The band is currently on tour, so go check them out:
