With warm basslines and signature ALIGN synth pads, the track is an emotional blend of upbeat pop and indie dance. ALIGN taps Martina Lynn for a soothing vocal top line on “When I’m With You,” pressing the theme of finding comfort in a lover’s arms. Recounting the writing process behind the track, the pair adds,
“I started writing this track by using some guitar plucks and experimenting with a soundscape. I wanted to create an ambient moment, then transition into more of a rhythmic beat. That soundscape became something that I could write chords on top of and develop a beat and melodies. I loved where it was going, but I knew it needed somebody’s story to accompany it. Martina seemed like the perfect fit for the vibe of this track.”-ALIGN
“When I first heard the track, I was immediately intrigued to start writing and creating a melody for it because it was an upbeat, EDM type track that I wasn’t used to working with and I was up for the challenge. My manager, Jeremy Gentry and I spent so much time writing, rewriting and recording all via video call, which was such a challenging, vulnerable process but it was so rewarding. When it comes to the actual writing process, we were both drawn to the idea of creating a healthy and happy story of love for the track, because those seem so rare lately. I think everyone can relate to the idea of only being able to think of one person when it comes to love and being in love and wanting them because of the comfort they bring.”-Martina Lynn
The release rounds out a standout year for both artists. Martina Lynn’s soothing vocals have notched her over 30 million views on socials and have propelled her towards what should be a stellar solo career. With “When I’m With You,” ALIGN adds another standout label single to the mix as he continues to grow his repertoire of infectious indie electronic beats.
