If you’ve been going through a lot lately, today’s Inbox Jukebox Presents is for you. Electro-pop trio A R I Z O N A’s new track, “Still Alive”, is relatable with a kick. The lyrics are all about pushing through hard times while the track is fingerpop-therapy—throwing back to the late 80s sounds of INXS and U2 but paying it forward with a beat that’ll make you dance into those brighter times ahead.
“‘Still Alive’ punctuates the idea that you’re going to go through these crazy moments in life and these weird times – bad things and good things,” vocalist Zachary Charles says. The song mixes a dynamic beat with echoing electro-synths that fuel the urgency held in the lyrics.
“The message in that song is even though you go through those things, you don’t have to lose your fight.”
“Still Alive” urges you to take a step back and remember that your heart’s still beating, you’ve survived so much, and you have so much to hold onto. “The message in that song is even though you go through those things, you don’t have to lose your fight,” Charles says.
This track is definitely a reason to smile and keep marching on today—you’ll be able to lose yourself in the hypnotic beat, accompanied by an equally enthralling video that’s a tripped out daydream of static and rainbow hues. You won’t be able to resist swaying along to: “I just won’t die…baby, I’m still alive.”
