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?

Listen to “Game Over” and learn more about the song below. You can learn more about Peter’s music and catch him on tour by visiting his website

1. I was writing the song in a moment where I was freshly married. It was little bit funny when the co-writer Tom Baxter came to me with an idea of writing a song about the broken ego of the man who loses the game with the woman he dated. It was a big paradox to my actual situation, because I felt very happy with my wife and it was quite hard for me to empathize with that kind of feeling.

2. Many times when I perform the song live I see flashbacks of my embarrassing moments with girls I was trying to date or had some short unsuccessful romances.

3. This is the only song from the EP that has 2 different mixes we were choosing from.

4. I was very hesitant to put this track on the EP. It was quite different than the others and I wasn’t sure if it fitted. I changed my mind five times until I definitely decided.

5. The drummer was recording this song after British Awards. After a big party. He obviously had a terrible hangover and the song is generally quite hard because of the odd time signatures and lots of rhythmic changes. It was an unfortunate timing for him. But after a lot of coffee and one hour meditation he unleashed his full potential and his part ended up really awesome 🙂
