German Electro Duo Digitalism Swear There Are ‘Second Chances’ on Glitchy Single
For the producers, it's all about living for today
Within dance music, there can’t ever be too many “Live For Today”/”Let’s Party Tonight”-type anthems. Following up on their earlier 2014 single “Wolves,” the German electro-house duo Digitalism build on that noticeably glossy and bright production with their new song, “Second Chance.” Working similarly to the effects of a physical stimulant, the track delivers a high-energy, party-ready sensory attack that’s firmly fastened to a throbbing dance melody.
“Second Chance” is also one of only a few songs by the German producers to feature vocals from Jens “Jence” Moelle — half of the Digitalism duo, along with ?smail ‘Isi’ Tüfeçki — the first track to do so since 2011’s “Circles.”
“Forget about the past tonight / It’s never too late,” he chants, playfully suggesting that even amid moments of heartbreak and missed connections, it’s still possible to live with a definite YOLO conviction.
