CTA Loves You – Take It Over (single) (self-released)
On “Take It Over”, CTA Loves uniquely combine Pet Shop Boys-style synthpop with a sleek and modernized sound. The melodic synthpop-driven verses quickly build momentum and pace leading to the song’s massive breakbeat chorus.
The production is punchy and sleek, layered with fat, buzzsaw synth-basses and quirky synth whirrs, held together by a rhythmic staccato organ riff, which provides the foundation to the song. Never once do the layers, however, interfere with the song’s brilliant vocal work.
A great little tune that infuses many dance and electronica elements giving synthpop an exciting and fresh, new look.
The single also features six different versions/remixes of the track courtesy of Japanese wunderkid Banvox, Italian outfit Fanny Games, and up & coming Londoners CutWires, amongst others.
“Take It Over” was released 12 May, 2013 and is available via iTunes now.
