‘If We Could Stay High’ is a dreamy and stimulative new track by LA based songwriter, producer and DJ Sj featuring vocalist Chelsea Lankes. The two take over the visuals for the song with a cinematic love story of an unconventional couple fighting to keep their passion afloat. The song plays off of his forthcoming EP ‘Calabasas’ out May 25 on Tritonal’s record label Enhanced.
“The song is about another relationship falling apart and wondering if it’s even possible to be with someone forever. It’s that moment when two people look at each other and say “Is this possible? Why isn’t love enough? Why can’t we be together?” The song doesn’t provide an answer. I don’t know if there is one.” mentioned SJ to Nakid.
Since releasing his first track “Hung Up,” a collaboration between him and Tritonal, which set his career off in the right direction with 30 million+ streams to date, Sj has been busy touring alongside Seven Lions and Kill The Noise as well as producing more original work.
Besides putting his time in writing and recording music, Sj also makes a concerted point to spend time providing relief efforts with his charity, One Life which is based in Nashville, TN and operates to help girls in Calcutta, India. The goal of Sj’s charity, One Life, is to transform the lives of impoverished girls, many of which whom have endured physical, mental, sexual and economic abuse within their communities.
Chelsea is no stranger to the game, she has been making rounds in the hypem charts and through youtube, her vocals style sounds very gentle and polished. Which makes a perfect match for this track.
“I think it’s about struggling to maintain passion and a sense of excitement in a relationship when you get down to understanding who that other person really is and all the flaws and baggage that come with them. Once the mystery is gone it’s harder to see through the lense of infatuation and you have to ask yourself what loving that person really looks like. ” She mentioned about her take on ‘If We Could Stay High’
