Kansas City based American producer Moose with a Scarf (Anthony Sabatino) returns with a variation of his energetic EDM track ‘Won’t Let You Go’, set to intrigue on the 13th of October. A graduate of Berklee College of Music and USC, he has composed music for over 100 different film, game, and television projects, with Moose with a Scarf existing as his EDM moniker. A sonic veteran of the game, he’s also developed an interactive music app Tabletop Tunes, writing and producing all the music for the application.
After getting into piano lessons thanks to his mother around the age of 5, Anthony‘s passion was truly ignited when he started playing songs from movies and video games that he liked. Eventually, he gravitated to rock music, especially 80s rock and synth pop, writing songs throughout high school. After a turbulent couple of years in liberal arts college, he decided to get back to his roots and apply to Berklee College of Music. After one failed attempt, he made it in, going on to be accepted into the USC screen scoring program, a prestigious initiative that only accepts 20 students a year. After this, he began freelancing, as well as working on his Moose with a Scarf moniker, with the ultimate goal of creating exciting and enjoyable music that could elicit the same goosebump inducing moments that got him into music in the first place.
‘Won’t Let You Go’ is sure to do just that. Kicking us off with some emotive house chords layered with piano, it’s an optimistically pleasant melodic progression befitting of the sanguine nature of the track. We’re then introduced to some clear and heartfelt vocals that are raw and powerful in their delivery, topically touching on love and the undeniable readiness to stick with your partner no matter what. Emitting a real classic EDM sound, the drop is playful and happy, with an infectious high-pitched synth line that bubbles and darts around the soundscape. It’s a track with a wholesome message on love and commitment, engulfed in a catchy EDM beat for maximum up-liftment, reminiscent of artists such as Zedd. The final bridge also features the same bubbling synth line in its full crescendo, as it is arpeggiated throughout its scale, dancing and rolling across the mix for a dose of synthetic flavor.
Moose with a Scarf had this to say: “There is a lot to this song, but ultimately my goal is to just make you feel good! It’s uplifting, energetic, bubbly, and overall gives a fun positive vibe. I want it to be a song you cant possibly live without, a song that gets stuck in your head (in a good way), and something that you just wanna blast over and over.”
