poptropicaslutz! Reignite a Y2K-Era Love Affair in "Lovers In Arms"


poptropicaslutz! have unveiled their latest tour de force, the single "Lovers In Arms." This track is a testament to their unique musical style, blending memorable wordplay with a matured songwriting approach. Hailing from Long Island and now based in LA, the duo, comprised of Nick Crawford, and Christian Cicilia, demonstrate their diverse musical influences, drawing from Y2K pop stardom, indie sleaze, pop-punk, and Soundcloud's rap era.

The song consistently uses the motif of soldiers and their tools of destruction, creating a powerful emotional narrative of lost love and heartbreak. Even with all the ammunition, there will be no homecoming reunion. The chorus echoes with marching band-esque percussion patterns and intricate bass and guitar riffs as the duo passionately sings, "When you command the truth / You deny your troops / I won't lie / I do mourn my time with you."

Fresh off their tour with Waterparks, which saw the duo playing to their biggest crowds to date in 4,000 cap venues, poptropicaslutz! is gearing up to release Face For The Radio: Voice for A Silent Film, out May 10. The forthcoming deluxe release of their debut album, Face For The Radio will include six additional songs alongside the original album tracklist. The duo says the title is about more than an old phrase. "Having a 'face for the radio' has historically described those better fit for something else." They continue, "Those set up for success, but not in their own lane. At times, that's been us, but not anymore."
