A meaningful look from a person you’re close to says more than a thousand words, and that premise is at the center of ARTY’s brand-new single on Armada Music. Made in tandem with frequent collaborator Griff Clawson, ‘Those Eyes’ ticks all the boxes of a crossover dance anthem and might just be ARTY’s most out-of-the-box record yet.
Heartfelt, catchy and at times uplifting, ‘Those Eyes’ is ARTY and Griff Clawson’s third-ever collaboration after ‘You’re Not Alone’ and ARTY’s remix of ‘Chasing Highs’. Between the crisp guitar licks and soothing vocals, the song blends classical instrumentation with dance elements to evoke a playful atmosphere that will hold its own in every musical environment.
‘Those Eyes’ was so much fun to produce”, ARTY says. “The entire time I spent working on it was nothing but natural fun and pure joy. Everything started with me listening to the demo for the first time and I couldn’t even recognize Griff’s voice even though we did so many tracks together in the past. And I think that’s what makes this song so unique and catchy. The blend of acoustic instruments and heavily processed vocals creates this strange, almost alienated vibe that immediately catches your ear because of its nature. But it’s not just a fun track to listen to; there is deeper meaning to it if you listen to the lyrics very closely. All in all, I’m very excited about this record to finally come out and I hope people will enjoy it the same way as I do!”
“This song is actually special to me because of its story”, Griff Clawson adds. “I started this song with the melancholy feeling I got after reminiscing about a past relationship. To me, this song is about taking risks with somebody whether that means growing together or growing apart. When I picture this song, I envision a high of a night and two people wanting each other fully in that moment. ‘Those Eyes’ is also a reminder to myself how encapsulating and telling a look from somebody you know can be: no words needed.”
