With the breakthrough success of their single ‘Trampoline’ and the global hit status of the Zayn collaboration version, all eyes were always going to be closely on SHAED with what they did next. With their worldwide tour being put on hold due to the current pandemic, the Washington DC trio have bounced back with a new single to have you dancing through this time of uncertainty.
‘No Other Way’ is a reminder to live in the moment, and to appreciate everything that comes your way. It’s a sentiment that is so important to really embrace right now as it’s so easy to get lost within the negativity. “I never care what people say. I live my life, no other way. Yeah we could die a million ways. But we’re alive another day” they sing during the infectious hook.
Layered by light synths, a prominent drum beat and a groovy baseline, this song has a unique and uplifting feel to it. You can’t help but immediately dance along to it and smile from ear to ear with its disco injected soul.
Written in a moment of anger and confusion after seeing their whole planned year go up in flames, ‘No Other Way’ was a beacon of light that has paved the way for the next chapter in their story as they head towards the release of their debut album next year.
