"The ubiquity of "Wannabe" is undeniable and has been so almost my entire life. I remember hearing this song from the time I was a child and I still hear it out in the wild today. As a voice and piano teacher this is a song that all of my young students still know today. For this reason we decided it was a song that we needed to cover. We went in a more easy-core / pop punk direction with the track as we thought this really fit with the lyrical makeup of the song. So many pop punk songs are about loyalty and friendship and this is the ultimate anthem in that regard. As a band we embody a lot of different vibes and flavors and we wanted to explore that with "Wannabe."" Says lead vocalist, Jackson Bengtsson about the new track.
This single is the fifth release since the band's covers of "Spooky Scary Skeletons," "Clarity," "Sexy And I Know It" and "Move Bitch" which follows behind the band's LP, Elswaer. The record threads together 10 tracks that mold a spacious story. The record introduces itself in a massive way, with bold soundscapes that deliver a cosmic environment. Designer Disguise highlights their capability to create unique music while keeping a sense of familiarity alive.
