Avicii: Liar Liar (Feat. Blondfire)
Avicii stunned the world with 'Wake Up', some people I talked with were stunned that he would create something bordering on 'Cotton Eyed Joe', while others were stunned at his ability to blend folk rock sentiment with mainstream dance music. I won't lie I walked the line on this, and frankly I am still not certain where the track falls, though I am leaning towards brilliance.
The release of his LP True was the final piece of evidence in support of brilliance. The finest example is the track 'Liar Liar', co-written by Blondfire and features the delicate vocals of lead singer Erica Driscoll throughout, which not only perfectly melds sexy SoCal mod-pop with dance sounds, but shows off a bit more of Avicii's ability as a versatile producer who is to craft more subtle dance music.
