BETABLOCK3R - Out Of Touch

Los Angeles-based duo BETABLOCK3R, comprised of Chris Boulos and Ryan George specializes in indie electronic and nu disco. Managed by Martin Kierszenbaum (founder of Cherrytree Records) they've been busy remixing the labels eclectic roster of artists from Ellie Goulding to RAC, with the biggest break so far being their remix of Sir Sly's "Gold" placed in the Cadillac's National Summer 2014 Commercial. More remixes are in the works, however BETABLOCK3R is also currently focusing on more original music following their impressive debut, "In My Head", which topped the Popular Chart on Hype Machine and has so far garnered 3.2 million streams on Spotify since its release earlier this summer. Today, the duo return with their energetic new synth-pop ballad called "Out Of Touch".

Speaking on the track, the duo says:

"We had initially written the instrumental for this song, and set it aside for some time. Upon listening back a couple months later, this theme emerged that really gave us a sense of direction for what the song should be about. The song was really inspired by this idea of what we think is happiness but is in fact unhealthy attachment. We find these attachments most often between individuals in a relationship but it could be any sort of addiction really. It's taking you down a path you don't want to go, but you feel committed to it. People assume their only path to happiness comes from external factors, we expect other people to fulfill us in some way which always leads to some sort of disappointment. We wanted to speak from the viewpoint of someone caught in that moment between understanding they're on the wrong path but not fully able to let go just yet, which is something we can all relate to at some point."

"Out of Touch" is available now on iTunes.
