Electric Zoo is around the corner, set for yet another Labor Day Week on Randall’s Island. With the Big Apple’s festival goers anxious to return to the festival, Electric Zoo has unleashed its official anthem. Produced by Codeko, featuring Raphaella, the aptly titled “Walking With Lions” embodies the Wild Island theme with its feel-good, anthemic dance production.
“We have always wanted to produce a festival anthem that represents the theme of our festival that would resonate with our fans,” says Electric Zoo Festival Director Adam Richman. “There is no question Codeko’s ‘Walking With Lions’ does exactly that.”
It opens low and cool with a swinging horn line and staccato synths but quickly builds into a confetti blast of bright notes and balanced bass. Raphaela sings a story of coming together in strength and excitement, echoing the best moments of any festival. Of course, the animal theme conjures the Zoo motif rather well.
“I am honored to have been selected to create this year’s Electric Zoo anthem,” Codeko says, “and can’t wait to drop it on the mainstage”
