The Thirst ft. Zhao
Falling somewhere in between a house lover’s delicious dream come true and a 80s pop enthusiast’s party-starting secret weapon, “The Thirst” nestles in between generations of music lovers, giving an experience that says “age is but a number. Let’s fuckin’ dance!”
We wouldn’t expect much less from LA-based Eric Sharp, though, as he’s continually impressed us with previous vocal-driven tunes. At times, they showcase a breadth of musical tastes, casually flirting with the experimental side of music. Other times, they fuse house and pop together seamlessly, providing a sound worthy of the masses. This release grabbed our attention immidiately, leading us to the groovy, live-recorded bassline and and guitar work, much like a cartoon bear being by the wafting scent of a freshly made pie.
Part of the intrigue of this track, in particular, is the addition of multi-instrumentalist Zhao, who not only brings live instrumentation, but his alluring voice, as well. After crafting this hip-shaker, they gave it a few test runs out and about in the City of Angels. As you could guess, the reception was on-point, hence the release with Liftoff Records.
