I first came across Willow at a caffe and it’s crazy to think about it was already 11 years ago, damn. ‘Whip my hair’ was full of color, energy and bass. Her latest collaboration with Tyler Cole under the band name The Anxiety goes in a different direction, but well let’s call it more mature.
The duo has released the track back in 2020, but it was kind of a sleeper hit for a long time, before it hit TikTok in 2021 with all the splashy summer moments we’ve seen. The song also performed really well on the chart, claiming No. 21 on the US Billboard.
This original had a little emo-tune which completely changed in Russ Harris’ remix. He pumped up the rhythm a bit and also heavier on the beat reforming to be a dance floor candidate. The summer vibe stayed, but it also reminds me a bit more of 90‘s bubblegum pop instead of the rebellion and eclectic mood. The US artist made several great mixes in the past, especially the old school house ones are cool, check it out!
