Kx5 are headed to the L.A. Coliseum in early December for only their second show thus far. Ahead of that major outing, deadmau5 and Kaskade have dropped their third collaborative Kx5 single, "Alive."
The haunting track sees the iconic duo joining forces alongside alternative rock outfit The Moth & The Flame. The band collaborated with Kaskade previously on their 2020 effort, "Haunt Me," a song which combined the band's penchant for dreamy atmospheric soundscapes with the added flair of electronic arpeggiation and house rhythms from Kaskade.
With "Alive," the band delves even further into the house music rabbit hole. Kx5 let the vocals shine in the verse as spacey vocals echo desolately only to the steady thump of crisp kicks. But the duo build up the tension to a fever pitch by adding densely layered chords, which envelop the track's crescendoing harmony in the pre-chorus.
