You might raise an eyebrow at Everliven Sounds’s lofty claim that “Life is like a video game.” I mean, you don’t see Italian plumbers eating giant mushrooms and saving princesses nor do you get rewarded for stealing cars and wreaking havoc on an unsuspecting city. Before you dismiss Everliven Sound, an emcee pair composed of Cymarshall Law and Skit Slam, and their new single Video Game, you might want to take a listen, because the duo makes some pretty good points and they do so with unique, left of center styles that will appeal to gamers and non-gamers alike. DJ Tee’s fluttering beat, equipped with an outro chocked full of video game samples, provides the twosome a platform to draw comparisons between real life and the animated/8-bit world. Grab your controller and get hip to the game by downloading the pair’ brand new album, The Everending Story, out now.
