Stick Figure has released “Way of Life,” a new song featuring fellow American reggae stars Slightly Stoopid. It’s the lead single off of Stick Figure’s upcoming album, which is in the final stages of production and set to be released this year. The single has the classic Stick Figure sound, blending the dub reggae influence of King Tubby and Barrington Levy with the modern tropical house influence of Kygo.
“I’ve always been intrigued by the soundscapes and reverbs used in Tropical House music,” Scott Woodruff, professionally known as Stick Figure, tells Billboard. “There is something so relaxing about that style. It really reminds me of being on the beach, a lot like reggae music does. So the idea for this track was to experiment blending that style with a roots reggae vibe. I started messing around making a beat for fun. I didn’t really intend for it to become a full song or anything initially. I made most of the music for this track in my mobile van studio, but pretty soon I knew I was onto something so I kept developing the song and began writing and soon enough it became ‘Way of Life.’ I sent it to my bro Kyle from Slightly Stoopid to have a listen and we knew it was a crucial collab that needed to happen.”
