Way back in March 2009, South Floridian duo New Breed stepped into the Booth with their debut promo single – a track which, contrary to its title, seemed to leave our readers' minds decidedly un-blown. Today, however, Marvelous and Cez have returned to make listeners (females, anyway) an offer that may be too damn catchy to refuse. On newly-released single Get Away, Raw Smoove's sugary, synth-soaked boardwork (sampled from Madonna's classic cut, Holiday) sets a retro mood as the twosome offer to fly a lucky lady to any locale her heart desires; whether her ideal vacation spot is Paris, the Bahamas, or the Moon, they're prepared to foot the bill. While the lyrical theme is hardly new, Get Away's combo of infectious bubblegum-pop production, engaging flows and big-name guest appeal (courtesy of hookman Sean Kingston) make for a track with considerable hit potential. Will it be enough to score NB's debut full-length, 15 Minutes Till Fame, a solid release date? I'll leave it to Booth readers to speculate.
