ICYMI: Morgan Page Dropped a Fiery New Track, "Other Girl"
Morgan Page has long turned heads within the progressive and electro house subgenres of electronic dance music, amassing Page several International Dance Music Award nominations, and likewise, a Grammy nomination for his reworking of Nadia Ali’s “Fantasy.”
A standout on Page’s 2015 album, “DC to Light,” “Open Heart,” a track to which Lissie lends her vocals, became a “BPM Breaker”—the station’s code for “banger”— on Sirius XM’s "BPM" channel--#51--home to dance music hits. Yet the possession of such an “Open Heart” can be dangerous, a situational peril captured perfectly by the lyrics of Page’s latest release, “Other Girl.”
“So I know this girl/I caught her pretty pictures on your phone/Is she the blonde with the curls?/I knew I couldn’t trust you all along,” the single’s vocalist, Rayla, declares. Admittedly confrontational, Other Girl is a contemplative musical case study of romantic deception that is a noticeable departure from the intense drops and heavy bass lines of prior Page productions like “Open Heart” and “Running Wild.” The opening undertones of Other Girl similar in style to those of Tchami’s “Adieu,” Other Girl is a more minimalistic track, a blend of pop—and what even sounds to be some future house—elements that best suit the single for both BPM Breaker status, and of course, placement as an anthem of gratitude—however inverted a form that thankfulness may take—on the Saturday evening playlists of those ladies subjected to a similar slight.
While hindsight is 20/20, this release is a 100/100: listen to Other Girl below.
