COMBO Member Enzi Puts Out New Single ‘Retrograde’
I was roaming around some audio sample websites when I found a voice mail of a guy asking someone, “When the hell does Mercury get out of retrograde because this is driving me batshit?”
I thought it was hilarious and I started thinking about what it meant when Mercury goes into retrograde. I’m not an astrology expert, but the belief is retrograde throws everyone out of whack and makes people really impulsive and prone to mistakes.
So, I thought, what is universally spontaneous and unhealthy? Texting your ex. Generally, that’s a pretty big no-no, and you know your friends will tell you “Dude, don’t you do it!” Of course, we can’t always help but think of someone we probably shouldn’t be with in a romantic way. I thought it would be fun to capture that in a song, and then blame it all on Mercury being in retrograde.
I hope you enjoy my new single, “Retrograde”, out today on all streaming services!
