Audien x 3LAU – “Hot Water” is finally here and demands your immediate attention, because it’s the best thing we’ve heard in a hot minute!


As the track opens, all ears are on Victoria Zaro as she leads the tune into an immersive, sugary soundscape created by the producers, led by swirling synths and tense percussion. But while her sweet, thoughtful vocals might have you fooled for a moment, the track suddenly erupts into a trap-infused drop with fat bass and simmering snares, making for a beautifully surprising release.

Coming up for breath, Zaro slightly changes up her lyrics verse-by-verse, chorus-by-chorus, making each moment even more unexpected and fragile…

I’ve been treading in hot water
Yeah, I know I let you down
And I’ll find a way to say I’m sorry
But my time is running out

I’ve been drowning in hot water
Yeah, I know I let you down
And I’ll find a way to say I’m sorry
But my time is running out
But would you le-le-le-le-let me drown
Reach your hand and pull me out
Would you le-le-le-le-le-le-le-le
I’m not perfect

You might not drown, but you’ll certainly get lost in these waters as the song totally takes over with every listen! Audien and 3LAU have totally outdone themselves with this one!
