Rising indie pop act East of Eli will be stinging back with a soon to be announced EP that will very well make the heavily Spotify listened band a fixture on alt radio. Fronted by singer/songwriter/actor Nathan West, Glide is proud to premiere their new single and video for“The Get Down”. West offers a radio-friendly followed by pop-minded rock backbone that recalls both X Ambassadors and Walk the Moon.
351 Studios/Sky Entertainment, who have produced hundreds of lyric videos for artists including One Direction, Cash Cash, Armin van Buuren, Robert DeLong, Morgan Page, STS9, and Big Gigantic, along with previous East Of Eli videos. As West shared with Glide “I got a little lucky getting the opportunity to work with such a high profile production company…They are music lovers as well and fell in love with our unique sound that’s EOE. We decided to embark on this joint venture and haven’t stopped working together since.”
When asked about the lyrics and meaning behind “The Get Down,” West said, “The song is all about the power of intimacy and connection between lovers. Today, more than ever, it seems all of our lives are overly saturated with an inbox full of ‘to do’s,’ both personally and work related. That being the case, it’s easy to get caught up in the busyness of our daily schedules that we undermine and forget how important it is to make a valid effort to connect on a physical level. Truth is, connecting on an intimate level is not only of the utmost importance but should always be a priority in a healthy relationship. This song was written based on moments for both [wife] Chyler and I, when out of the blue we’ve realized that ‘the stars have aligned’ schedule-wise giving us an opportunity to seize the moment and steal the time to be together.” West’s wife is actress Chyler Leigh (Supergirl, Grey’s Anatomy), who often performs with him.
“In essence, this song is all about two souls becoming one and it’s a big part of the reason Chyler & I just celebrated 15 years of marriage and have been together for over 18 years,” adds West. “We’ve never lost sight of the importance to find time to connect with another. We will always steal a moment when we can to ensure our love continues to grow strong.”
