“You can try and erase what you think you know, we'll be feeling the same in the afterglow”
The best energy of all is the Afterglow, that golden period after an epic moment. Washington, DC's own Black Masala is basking in the Afterglow at the moment, after taking a break from a heavy touring schedule. The last few years have been momentous for Black Masala as they band managed to release albums, remixes and videos while also touring and performing regularly. It's nice to take a break, and now we're back with something fresh and new.

Always seeking new ground to cover and sounds to explore, Afterglow is Black Masala's dive into the world of pop-friendly dance music. Steady pulsing beats are just dripping with electro-synths, on top of a bed of horns. The vocals drive the track, complete with a melodic brige and an almost-retro pop hook. Hold tight for some tight staccato percussion with a nice spacey breakdown.
Black Masala are back with just the right kind of upbeat tune and irresistible groove that draws the listener in. So let your worries drift away, dance, have fun and feel the Afterglow.

Lyrics

AFTERGLOW

Shaking shaking till the night runs out
Faking fake like we only know how
And the tide goes up
Come to wash it out
As the waves come down
Maybe maybe we’ll just go all out

I’ll be falling for you every time you go
Got me lost in the words that I used to know
You can try and erase what you think you know
We’ll be feeling the same in the afterglow

Mixing and mix all it up in my head
Take this wine and spin it on your bed
Maybe It’s the way you go all out
Night catches up with doubt
Dancing dance like we only know how

I’ll be falling for you every time you go
Got me lost in the words that I used to know
You can try and erase what you think you know
We’ll be feeling the same in the afterglow

My feelings here are certain
Je t’aime pour toujours
Your words keep giving me purpose
Je t'aime pour longtemps
Je t’aime toujours
We can’t stop this, We can’t stop this, We can’t stop this, We can’t stop this
Give me afterglow, Give me Afterglow, Afterglow, Give me Afterglow

I’ll be falling for you every time you go
Got me lost in the words that I used to know
You can try and erase what you think you know
We’ll be feeling the same in the afterglow
