Metal-core band, Designer Disguise have released their new cover track "Sexy And I Know It," originally performed by LMFAO. The track is the follow-up release to the band's cover "Move Bitch" and part of the upcoming compilation WOW That's What I Call Metacore, Vol. 1.
"Sexy And I Know It" takes fans on a nostalgic ride as they're introduced to moments of early 2000's imagery while living in the sound of a modern world. Designer Disguise melds visions of pop culture moments like Twilight and Thor, with hints of the original "Sexy And I Know It" music video to tie everything together. The band twists the track into a catchy metal-core opus honing in on their ability to reinvent anything they want. As the track comes to an end, Designer Disguise takes the song a step further by transitioning into a bit of "Party Rock Anthem" pulling the track to an explosive close.
Designer Disguise have previously released a viral cover, their rendition of "Get Low" has accumulated nearly 2 million streams stemming from TikTok viral videos and user generated content. Proving that the band and their unique spin is built to last. As they continue to build and activate their ultra rabid fanbase at a feverish pace, they are constantly begging for hints and clues as to what song the band will reinvent next!
"This was a song that was always ridiculous and we thought it would go hard in a metal reworking. In the studio we had a great time mixing LMFAO’s 3 biggest hits into one at the end of the track as well. Metal songs that you can party to are something that we think everyone can use more of and this one is fun and heavy all in one. As a metalhead who used to party a lot I would’ve lost my mind hearing this at a party. This song brings the mosh pit to the dance floor and who could ask for more?" Says lead vocalist, Jackson Bengtsson.
This single is the second release since the band's cover of "Move Bitch" which follows behind the band's LP, Elswaer. The record threads together 10 tracks that molds a spacious story. The record introduces itself in a massive way, with bold soundscapes that deliver a cosmic environment. Designer Disguise highlight their capability to create unique music while keeping a sense of familiarity alive.
"This album is the story about finding hope when there feels like there is none. It is a classic hero’s journey in which our main character Kai is swept away from his planet Elswaer and taken on an adventure. He joins The Nova Children on their quest to find The Flame and defeat the evil New Order. This album inspects how it feels to fight for good and light when all feels it is in darkness." Says The band regarding the new record. "The songs are an introspection into the universe we’ve created, but even more so it is an illustration of our feelings living in our own dark world. In many ways this album is in response to the government, covid, and many other tumultuous world events. This is how we coped during this difficult time. We decided to tell a story. Welcome to Elswaer.’"
