Lucas Nord has released his fetching new single "Mess It Up." It begins with a nostalgic sample, and soon transforms into an R&B flavored pop tune. The track comes complete with heavy low end and ear grabbing synth sounds.
"Mess It Up" was created in a dark place, deep in Nord's mind. The Swedish artist told Billboard,"I wrote 'Mess It Up' in a basement in Green Point, Brooklyn with Roger Kleinman, Zach Seman and Theo Seman (A$AP Rocky, Whethan) last summer. It started off with us playing around with a beat up Roland SH-101 synth Roger had found on the sidewalk that day. It was broken and barely worked but it had this weird pitch and wobbly sound that became the bass sample for the track.
I wrote the lyrics for the song about a recent break up I had with a girl and how I repeatedly f*ck up relationships – I can be somewhat selfish and spend all my time and energy on music rather than dating relationships. Despite being an absent partner, I still crave their attention, which never works out well in the end."
Lucas Nord is truly talented, and "Mess It Up" is just a taste of how unique he is as an artist.
