It's never fun to watch a relationship fizzle out, and it's even less enjoyable to be in the middle of that disaster, but the drama can lend itself to some pretty funky rhythms. Night Drive's “Rise and Fall” is a testament to that. The synth-heavy single has a relentless beat that pushes one away from the “sudden unavoidable end,” as the duo puts it, even though walking away is always hard.
What's not hard, however, is letting Classixx turn said break-up anthem into an even chiller, disco memory.
“Classixx reinterprets the song through the lens of that same person reminiscing about the incident many years later while chilling on a beach and sipping a martini,” Night Drive says in an emailed statement. “Sure, it was sad and heartbreaking, but it's hard to stay sad while in the Cayman Islands.”
