Playing between the lines of poignant lyrical content and bright electronic drifts, “Alcohol” is a dynamic listen. The track leads with somber vocals, “My glass is half empty, like the promise you made,” giving it a raw authenticity sometimes lacking in traditional dance music. The emotive hooks paired with climbing drums and vivid synths make for more undeniable musical fire from the highly successful producer.
“When I heard the vocal, I was extremely excited,” said Borger. “It’s so relatable and will definitely strike a chord with listeners and transport them to different experiences in their lives.”
A staple of dance chart top 10s globally, Borger has an exceptional knack for producing hit EDM tracks. The “Tsunami” producer is no stranger to festival main stages and has even had the DVBBS collaboration crowned “the most played track at Tomorrowland.” With the vocal-led power that “Alcohol” harnesses, the single is certain to add to his platinum sales.
