A toxic obsession: Victim by Halflives

Halflives’ new single, “Victim,” is the third track we’ve been lucky enough to hear from the French band in the past year. The song was co-produced, mixed and mastered by Elliot Polokoff (Cemetery Sun), who has also worked with bands like Jamie’s Elsewhere.

“Victim” admits that we’re all human and get drawn to what’s bad for us – because we like it.

The song is more electronic-focused than “Vibe”, another Halflives song we shared recently, but the massive synths and arrangement easily make up for the lack of guitar.

This is one song not to miss – take a listen now, and preorder their EP V now, due July 2nd!

Vibe with the gritty pop rock of Halflives

A pop rock song really has to hit me just the right way to pique my interest – a combination of catchy hooks, distorted guitars, and a gritty attitude.

French act Halflives have managed to do just that with their latest track, “Vibe”. Co-producer Elliot Polokoff, of the band Cemetary Sun, skillfully blended rock riffs and a massive beat with electronic elements to help push the song forward.

The passionate, fed up lyrics blend so perfectly with the song to create a cohesive journey that ends far too soon.

Listen to the song below, and make sure to watch the video for the song which premieres on YouTube at 3PM EDT on April 15th!
