Since forming Timeflies in 2010, Rob Resnick and Cal Shapiro have played off their distinct sensibilities to build a boundary-warping yet instantly catchy hybrid of pop, hip-hop, and electronic music. Last year, the East Coast-bred duo decided to shake up their creative process even further by relocating to Los Angeles and ditching the typical album-based approach to making music.
Their first release following the move was the early-2016 single “Once In A While,"which quickly amassed more than 245 million streams on Spotify, and ultimately emerged as one of their biggest hits to date.Brightly textured and blissfully melodic, “Once In A While” looks at the upheaval that Timeflies experienced upon relocating to L.A. from Manhattan. Throughout “Once In A While,” Timeflies amp up the track’s emotional intensity by alternating Cal’s soulful vocals with his seamless rapping style. “The idea behind the song is that, even if you feel like your whole life is in flux, there are always those moments that feel perfect, where you can just dance and feel good,” Cal explains. On their follow-up single “Something Wrong,” Timeflies blend heavy beats and airy atmospherics into a more urgent but still hopeful exploration of self-doubt and trusting your instincts. “We’ve learned through years of being in the music business that we know, better than anyone else, how to be the best versions of ourselves,” says Cal. “The message of the song is you should always listen to yourself—because even when you think you’re fucking up, you’re probably doing all right.
