North of Nine, ‘Better Off Together’ [SONG PREMIERE]
As the snow slowly melts away and flowers begin to burst forth, we know you're looking for that perfect spring track to blast while driving around with the windows down. Well, look no further than North of Nine's "Better Off Together," which is our new spring JAM. And lucky for you, we have the exclusive premiere of the track right here!
If piano-driven pop-rock is your ish (like it is ours), then you will be all about North of Nine's "Better Off Together," which boasts some swoon-worthy vocals, an addictive chorus and a steady drumbeat that is the heart of the tune. We talked to lead singer Jackson Guthy about the track.
"It's a song that comes from the heart," he revealed exclusively to PopCrush. "It says honest words. It starts ominous and a little darker, but then the chorus gets bright and happy. It's a journey. It's really honest both in the lyrics and the music and I hope people relate to it."
"Won't you fly with me, you can lay with me / Let's get lost in forever, you know we're better off together," he sings on the kind of refrain that makes you just want to scream it at the top of your lungs. "Won't you fly with me, ride or die with me / Let's get lost in forever, you know we're better off together."
"It's about a state of mind -- your inward state of mind, reflecting and realizing in the past that the person you were with may have been better for you than being off alone," Jackson added about the song. "As I get older I start to understand relationships more -- not just girls and dating, all relationships -- family, friends -- and how the people in my life shape who I am and what kind of person I want to be. Life has a lot of ups and downs, but you have to push through the bad times. In the end you have to surround yourself with people that believe in you and that make you happy." Ain't that the truth!
