Los Angeles-based dance-pop trio TELYKast have released a slew of top-notch remixes this year, including their reworked version of Alok and Jason Derulo's "Don't Cry For Me." The group often combines live instrumentation with anthemic, boastful dance sounds to create original songs and remixes that feel like they're made for big crowds. TELYKast haven't released any original songs this year but had a big moment when their song "DAYLIGHT" went viral on TikTok. Now, they're back with "Somebody New," a track that is undoubtedly one of their most exciting.
The song features soft pop vocals whose simple lyrics "I need somebody new so I forget about the things that I want to do when I'm with you" are etched into the listeners' minds. These lyrics come just before the bouncy bass that makes this song one of the most danceable of the year. It's a dance-meets-pop song that bears a climactic moment and, after a few seconds, seem to extend throughout the entire song. It's an undoubtedly high-quality track that makes TELYKast an intriguing new group to look for going into the fourth quarter of the year and beyond.
