Sbtrkt is gearing up to release his new album, The Rat Road, in May. Following the debut of the lead single “Waiting” featuring Teezo Touchdown, the enigmatic musician returns with a groovy track titled “Days Go By” featuring Toro y Moi.
Aaron Jerome commented on the song’s theme in a statement, as reported by The Fader: “As humans, our moods are changeable. We are still able to laugh amidst this collective anxiety. I’m tapping into how we feel about our role in climate change and the future, the politics of Britain, but also the music industry. You need all your wits about you to not get screwed over.”
The four-and-a-half-minute song is consistently trippy and groovy as Toro Y Moi reflects on the repetitiveness of daily life: “I called just to see if you could still go out / Nothing was open so we just stayed in.”
