New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ PRMD Records)
Dynamic Swedish DJ duo Cazzette, aka Alexander
Björklund and Sebastian
Furrer, will release Run For Cover on iTunes today. Dancing Astronaut called Run for Cover "a standout track from Eject that's classic Cazzette
in the sense of the dubstep break and electro drop." The track is the second single from Cazzette's upcoming EJECT album on PRMD/4th &B'way/Island Records, which is set for an iTunes release on January 28. The dramatic video for Run For Cover with its allusions to Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds, premiered on VEVO/YouTube last week.
Run For Cover blends elements of house, electro and dubstep into a searing dance floor powerhouse. Switching between bursts of four to the floor energy and thunderous half-step drum patterns, the 8 bit-melodies and warped bassline collide with lightning rod synths to create a standout club track. All of this ferocity is captured in the ambitious, widescreen vision for the video, which sees a man hunted through an eerily deserted, ice-covered city by a swarm of genetically mutated pigeons under instructions from a higher authority.
Run For Cover first appeared on the Spotify release of Cazzette's EJECT album, which made Cazzette
the first group ever to launch a project exclusively through the streaming service. Since the release, EJECT has had 33 million Spotify streams, and Run For Cover has had 2 million streams.
made a huge splash in 2011 with its official remixes of Avicii's 'Sweet Dreams' and Swedish House Mafia's 'Save The World.' Just this year, the duo headlined Ultra Music
Festival, EDC Chicago, EDC Las Vegas, Electric Zoo, Summerburst Gothenburg, Tomorrowland, TomorrowWorld, Ultra Korea and Ultra Croatia, and performed on primetime TV for Arthur Ashe Kids' Day. Cazzette's massive track "Beam Me Up" was featured in the Star Trek "Into Darkness" trailer, and will appear in the upcoming film 'Almanac,' out in February. Cazzette
will tour in the U.S. in Spring
