Martin Garrix, Maejor uphold AREA21’s lack of predictability on alias’ second album piece, ‘Pogo’
What a seven-day stretch for Martin Garrix. If celebrating his 25th ride around the sun and turning in his EURO2020 anthem with Bono and The Edge didn’t already hit the May quota, he’s now going one step further to confirm that good things come in threes. Just one month after the initial landing of “La La La,” AREA21‘s space cruiser has now re-entered Earth’s orbit with Garrix and Maejor further priming their alias’ fall-slated freshman album—now tied to both Disney’s Hollywood Records and STMPD RCRDS—with “Pogo.”
Exactly like its predecessor, “Pogo” signals another entirely new sonic swing for AREA21. The sophomore single from the forthcoming long-form stays right on par with Garrix and Maejor’s pattern: presenting some degree of alias activity on the 21st of each month. Stylistically, “Pogo” inches a little closer back toward the two-headed troupe’s more dance-centric wheelhouse. Monotony remains absent from AREA21’s aesthetic, with Maejor’s autotuned-glowed vocals and Garrix’s clean-cut house build. While the single’s arrival is more than sufficient in itself, “Pogo” continues the animated story—created by Titmouse—that follows AREA21 on a carefree voyage throughout the horizonless cosmos.
