  • What So Not Releases New Song “On Air” featuring Louis The Child, Captain Cuts & JRM

  • Australian record producer Chris Emerson, aka What So Not released a new song “On Air” from his upcoming sophomore album “Anomaly”.

    This time, he teamed up with Chicago-based DJ duo Louis The Child, Los Angeles-based producers trio Captain Cuts and Jamaican singer-songwriter JRM on the track.
    Chris Emerson said of the song, “The easiest way to describe 'On Air' is – it's like Disney, it's very unpretentious, very fun, and channeling those dancing 'in the sky' kinda moments. I don't usually write this happy, bubbly upbeat stuff, it's always brooding and moody, but this time it felt so authentic. It felt inner childlike, so I went with it.”
    He continued, “It's quite an innocent song, and in the storyline of the album, the song actually became the separation between a sheltered upbringing and then going and taking on a pretty chaotic and exciting world for the first time, which is a thing you see in an animated movie, 'How To Train Your Dragon.' The song for me is channeling that energy. When we wrote, it was JRM's birthday at 4 am in Los Angeles. The funniest thing about this one is the main riff is like a plastic toy saxophone, and it was actually a challenge. We tried to find the most stupid thing in the room and challenged each other to try and write a riff or an iconic thing, and my friend picked up this plastic toy saxophone – a kid's toy which is how this feeling came about and I was like 'play that and I'll turn it into a beat.' And I did and that's the start of the song.”
  • The new album is set to be released on September 16, 2022. It is his first album in four years since the 2018 debut album “Not All the Beautiful Things”
    He said of the album, “Making 'Anomaly' was an internal deep dive. I sing on the opening track, belted even. I didn't know I could do that! It just came out of me one day and I thought: 'Woah, OK…this is the start of the next era.' For that song, in particular, I'd been thinking about the whole thing with Keith Flint after I'd just missed a planned catch-up with The Prodigy on their Australian tour. As well as that, I was also listening to Lil Peep and Underworld. It's such a strange combo of things, but you can hear it all in there! Many of the songs are from that same period: driving around Europe in a rental, cranking playlists, jumping in the studio with Noisia, Jammer, Explore, Petit Biscuit, and San Holo. Or going to a jazz club in Paris at 3 am with Anderson .Paak and The Free Nationals. I was traveling the world just for fun and recording along the way.”
