With their first single of the year, “Cross My Heart,” ONEDUO makes an emotional statement. Immediately, listeners are struck by atmospheric melancholy. The release’s somber tone is further expounded by Ria Lucia’s vocal performance, as the narrative describes the realization that despite wanting someone, the fire of love has burnt out. Fans of EDM – or music in general for that matter – surely resonate with sounds that evoke a feeling and ONEDUO have certainly pulled it off with “Cross My Heart.”
Though the inception of ONEDUO, comprised of Michael Scimeca and Stephen Georgillis, occurred in 2012, the act burst into notoriety in 2017. The New York natives have built a reputation for blending powerful and melodic elements to provide uplifting experiences. The delivery on that expectation has earned the duo well over a million streams on Spotify and performances at high-profile events such as Amsterdam Dance Event, Electric Zoo, and more. Clearly possessing increasing levels of momentum, ONEDUO show no signs of letting up.
