Cheat Codes' Nicky Romero Collab 'Sober' Tempts You to Text All Your Exes: Listen
publish date: 2017-07-28
Remember when the internet told you not to Drake and drive, because you'd end up at your ex's house? Cheat Codes and Nicky Romero's new collab track “Sober” will have you on a similar wave.
The lyrics are a tale old as time. Girl goes on a date, girl has a few too many drinks, girl starts seeing the face of her ex when the new guy stands too long in the shadows. She starts thinking back to all those old times, because everything seems rosier through the lens of a couple Jack and cokes. She starts replaying the nights, starts listening to their songs, and before you know it, she's texting the one she shouldn't be stressing.
Melodically, “Sober” is a lot less messy than those nights. It's actually a carefree tune, reflecting the easiest, most exciting parts of the relationship, which is of course all you can think about right now. Cheat Codes and Nicky Romero really got you with this one.
