One year ago, Cash Cash graced Seattle with a packed show at Foundation. In May, we saw Cash Cash again for Budweiser’s Made in America tour. This past September, we got a sneak peek for their newest single, Surrender via an Instagram post. Finally, four months later, we get to watch Surrender in all of its glory. And oh, what a music video it is! Let’s just say this: there’s a pig, a tattoo gun, a racy session of Spin the Bottle, and it all takes place in a New York mansion with models that can best be described as an avant-garde Calvin Klein ad.
If you’re as confused as we are after watching the music video, thankfully, Cash Cash member Jean Paul Makhlouf clues us in to what the song is all about.
Surrendering is usually seen as something negative or like a sign of defeat, but this song shows a completely different side of it. Sometimes it’s the fight that kills you, sometimes you don’t even know what you’re fighting for, sometimes surrendering is what sets you free. And I think this song is definitely a great example of that.
The track is currently working its way up the Beatport and Billboard charts and will no doubt soon be a radio hit. Tell us what you think about the song and the music video on our Facebook page or by commenting below.
