“Inspired by the famous myth of Sisyphus, the Greek King punished to eternally push the boulder up the hill, this release speaks to the glory in that eternal loop. With Daft Punk inspired synths, thumping disco drums, live strings, and additional vocal work by UK soul wonder Slowe, “Sisyphus” turns the classic myth into a summer anthem about the perseverance in the everyday.”Ethan Mark
