Kastra and Linney have teamed up together to premiere their new single titled ‘Without You’. Unabashed with the hook and inspiring with the music, ‘Without You’ very well could be one of the top songs that we’ve reviewed this year. Bold statement? Yes, and I’ll tell you why. Dance music is a giant niche that the artists involved in can become trapped into creatively.
Most forget that the songs are about more than just the beat and the rhythm. Kastra and Linney have added that much needed heart and they wear their hearts on their sleeve. A good song sparks emotion and this song makes you feel that emotion. That certain something unique in every one of us that makes us, not only fans of the music, but part of the music. For this reason alone is why, when you look at these two artist’s socials, you see images of them playing to packed houses. Now hit play, and let them fill your house with sonic bliss.
“[It’s] about finding your person. Someone who inspires you to live life to its fullest, take those risks. When you’re too afraid to jump, they’re there to catch you. When you’re too afraid to get hurt, they love you harder [and] love you more.”Linney
