"It's Around You," the latest single from Miami pop duo ANR, has a relaxed, groovy sound, but it's actually inspired by chaos. "This started out real simple, with just the vocal loop and thoughts of how it's been six years since a major hurricane hit south Florida," says singer and drummer Michael-John Hanock. "The idea of the song, and the chorus in particular, is to sonically and even lyrically connect with the traditional halftime modern R&B crowd, participation song style, but to have the actual concept of the song relating to evacuation procedures during a natural disaster. The chorus is telling people how to use their hands, feet, and voices to signal a helicopter from the roof of a house or building. What's 'around you' in this case is water and debris."
