‘A 1000 Times’, set for release via Glassnote Records, is the duo’s first link-up. A jaggedy pop number, it finds both Rostam’s production and Hamilton’s far-reaching vocal tying themselves together nice and tight. Which, as it turns out, was sort of the point.
“‘A 1000 Times’ started with a beat I made while Hamilton and I were working out of my studio in LA,” explains Rostam. “We picked it back up in New York and finished writing it in Washington, DC. I wanted us to do a song where the snares would crack as hard as Hamilton’s voice. To me, the song became about that interaction between the vocals and the drums.”
