MAJOR LAZER: New Collab w/”Get Free”

Dirty Projector’s Amber Coffman teams up with Major Lazer for the calypso-inspired, progressively-themed track “Get Free.” Yeah, it’s that kind of music.

Words: Zoy Britton

Major Lazer recently released “Get Free,” a track featuring Amber Coffman of Indie Rock band the Dirty Projectors which appears to be an unofficial roll call for music lovers around the globe who dare to dream. Against Lazer’s Calypso-cum Electronica production work, Coffman beautifully garbles: Never got love from a government man/Heading downstream ‘til the levee give in/What can I do to get the money/We ain’t got the money, we aint gettin’ out/Heading downstream ‘til the levee give in/All my dreams are wearing thin/I need relief/I need, I need some sympathy. The straight heat that it is, the song is somewhat nostalgic in that Jamaica circa 1974 comes to mind; an era of lover’s rock, free spirits and wild childs.

And Coffman’s melody transcends the heavy wearisome cries she belts above and behind the classic dub sounds. Already getting massive burn in the Twitterverse, we’re looking forward to hearing and seeing more from this collaboration. Major Lazer sure knows how to pick’em.
