"The new R&B underground"
The title "Hundredaire" (let you go) is a play on words of Kelis and Andre 3000's "Millionaire". An homage with a life of its own. No money, same problems.
Will Schwartz from Hey Willpower sings it like he means it; a postmodern take on a love gone awry. Inspired by real life events, and masterpieces like "You Keep Me Hangin' On" and "Walk On By", it's a story everyone can understand. Whether it's the beat of the snare that happened to be there, the Yamaha "Bar Mitzvah Keyboard" on which Will plays the lead riff, or the vocal choir that catapults the simple phrase in the chorus "Let You Go" straight into your heart, there's something for anyone who has felt the highest of highs, and the lowest of lows.
"You've got me locked inside a cage
I think it's time to burn the sage
I thought this emptiness would pass
I'm more than just a piece of ass"
We know you know what he's talking about
