At one point in time, the west coast eccentrics that made up the genre-bending, criminally-slept-on group OverDoz. had a legitimate shot at crossover success. Since then, the all-too-typical cycle of delays and major label struggles have kept them from reaching new creative heights and realizing their commercial potential; thankfully, that tide appears to be turning in their favor.
Fresh off an impressive live BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge rendition of “Skywalker” and some collaborative efforts alongside KYLE, singing and songwriting superstar Miguel joins creative forces with his fellow Californians for “Backstage.” Released as the latest major single in support of OverDoz.’s anticipated major label debut LP 2008, “Backstage” is a melodic, crowd-moving groove about all the “cream of the crop” groupies that catch the collective gaze of the song’s creators; with these artists, it’s deeper than one night at a Holiday Inn Express.
You can stream OverDoz. and Miguel’s “Backstage” single above, while 2008 is on course to drop on October 27.
