Looking for a new tune to groove to this spring? We’ve got you!
For today’s #MusicMonday, we are introducing you to Slovakian artist Peter Aristone and his earworm of a track called “Game Over.”
For those of you who aren’t familiar, Peter hails from Slovakia and started playing guitar at 14. After a steady rise to fame in Eastern Europe, he launched his debut album, ‘19 Days in Tetbury,’ with featured performances by Melanie C from Spice Girls and James Dean Bradfield from Manic Street Preachers. A U.K. tour performance caught the attention of songwriter Sacha Skarbek and their subsequent writing collaboration led to the creation of Peter’s sophomore release, ‘Gold,’ an album which resulted in top honors on MTVU and an extensive U.S. tour. Teaming up once more with Sacha and an array of world-class musicians, Peter released his current EP — ‘Happiest Accidents’ — which features his latest single “Game Over.”
The song is set in the moment of irreversibly breaking up with someone and provides a catchy hit that cleverly hides its odd-time signature.
Co-written with Tom Baxter in London, Peter sings, “So I am the joker / you are the queen of hearts.” Never one to be deterred, Peter optimistically calls out “And even though my heart breaks / I will forget the pain / I’ll be looking for another / so turn it on and start again.”
A song perfectly timed for spring and new beginnings? Definitely.
To learn more about the infectious track, we asked Peter to reveal five fun secrets about making it — did you know that it almost didn’t make the cut?
