Video: More Or Les and Recordface – Heads Down
ABOUT “HEADS DOWN”:
You’re probably doing it right and don’t even know it. You’re staring into a lit-up screen, right now. Checking emails, checking texts, looking on Facebook, reading a playlist, swiping through pics. You’re doing it right now. And it’s cool – More Or Les does it too. Doing that’s not the problem – doing that all the time over all else instead of interacting with your loved ones, or taking care of someone, or paying attention to the road – doing THAT is the problem. This bass-heavy song with tight drums is about all of that. Recordface and Les only want your attention for four and a half minutes – take a break from instagram, Reddit, 9Gag and whatever the latest crazy thing Kanye said and peep a song about the thing you love the most – your Portable Electronic Device…
Unafraid of complicated subjects, Les dove right into a matter that has no easy answers – the Pharma industry – and how people’s lives are affected by the perceptions of medical drug use and mental health. This song is available only on the “Heads Down” DJ pack – an exclusive track on an elusive topic. With crazy scratching over psychedelic guitars and moody bass.
