Tyzo Bloom – LA based producer and songwriter Casey Chen – gives a futuristic pop spin to lushly emotional pop gem ’24 Hrs’, by NYC based songstress Janelle Kroll.
Kroll explains: “’24 hrs’ takes place on a night that pushes on until sunrise in a city with no horizon. It’s an ode to predictable parties in unfamiliar places with strangers, and an expression of detachment felt within the anonymity of the night and of the city. You might interact with someone who appears to be an entirely different person the next day who not only won’t relate to you but can’t remember you. But more importantly, it’s an intervention for those whose environment has seemingly shaped them irreversibly and a plea for authenticity. That’s not to say the city, in my case New York City, isn’t a place for belonging or that the anonymity isn’t beautiful. After all, the push and pull of belonging and longing is the magnet that keeps me here. At times I prefer to quietly observe on the outside, swaying to the beat taking swigs of water while drinks spill on my white sneakers as I try to make myself invisible. If I jumped in, the night would swallow me whole.”
