ALWZ SNNY is changing the face of dance music with every release as he explores more within the realms of Country Dance drawing inspiration from the likes of Marshmello, Martin Garrix and Avicii. Sail Away is the latest release from ALWZ SNNY with the help of long-time friend Sincerely Collins. The track is insanely catchy with a whole load of melodic elements and the potential to be ALWZ SNNY’s biggest tune yet so we caught up with him to discuss more about how the track came to fruition.
What was the inspiration for ‘Sail Away’?
Collins and I were at my apartment along the Chesapeake Bay working on new songs. We could see tons of boats out on the water. It was ironically a very cloudy day. I played the sax riff and he instantly said, “That right there! We need that!” He then started writing to it as I continued finishing the production of it.
Did the track live up to your initial expectations?
Since I don’t put expectations on songs, rather yet the goal is to have fun. I would say yes! I enjoy playing it every time I DJ and from the comments I have been reading, the feedback is fantastic!
How would you sum up the release in 3 words?
Fun / Summer / Vibes
You worked with Sincerely Collins on this track, how did that come about?
We have been close friends for a very long time. He is like a brother to me. It was just another one of the many songs we have created together.
What is your favorite part of the track?
I love the pre chorus build up, when Collins says, “Here in the moment, time is no opponent, why spend it alone, when you can Sail Away with me”. His voice and the country undertone are just incredible.
What are your goals for this release?
To continue building my ALWZ SNNY brand. This is all still very new. My first song ‘Parachute’ came out just 8 months ago! So, to just continue building momentum.
Who would you love to see supporting this release?
I think it would be amazing seeing Martin Garrix support it. He is always spending time out on the water and it would have been perfect fit for his Dutch Waters mix he put out on YouTube.
Did you face any creative struggles at all?
During the video shoot it actually really started pouring rain. So, we were wondering how much time we would get to actually film but luckily it all worked out in the end.
What other projects are you working on at the moment?
I have a new song called ‘As Long As We’re Together’ coming out early October. It has some really cool Avicii vibes to it. I am super excited about that!
Where can people grab their copy of ‘Sail Away’?
All the major platforms have it. I would recommend YouTube though because you will get to see the visual.
