New Release: Martin Garrix Featuring John Martin and Michel Zitron - Now That I've Found You

11 March Critic Jonni 2 Comments



Martin Garrix makes his debut on my blog today with this song that should be a hit around the world. but according to iTunes charts, it doesn't seem likely. This is the sort of song I would expect to climb the chart much like Shawn Mendes' "Stitches" and Zara Larsson's "Lush Life". Martin Garrix is back with a hit I love, although many prefer the original song without the vocals. The video is independently strong and yet confusing all over.

Martin Garrix, real name Martijn Garritsen, had a global hit with "Animals", since then he hasn't come close to getting another number one in the UK, but he has recently split from his label Spinnin' Records and so he isn't being promoted as much, although this song definitely deserves to be a worldwide hit. This song features John Martin, real name John Martin Lindström, who has had a number of hits both solo and as featured, he is definitely one to look out for when he sets off on his music domination, because he will be a global sensation, he pretty much is already. As for Michel Zitron, he has had lots of uncredited vocals on tracks we all know and love, will he always be behind the scenes? Or will he take the risk and enter the spotlight? Only time will tell. The song is definitely catchy, one I love. It was originally known as "Don't Crack Under Pressure" before the vocals were added.

The video was directed by Peter Huang, and is a full narrative video. It features main character Jules, who is a backpacker travelling from one place to another. I don't know who the actress is, if anyone knows feel free to let me know by commenting below.

Whilst on her travels alone she bumps into a guy, who she falls in love with, I also don't know his actor's name, so comment below if you do. They clearly enjoy their time together, and have plenty of fun experiences.

However the ending is more sad than anything, he clearly did something wrong because in the voice mail he mentions that he 'made a big mistake', the only thing that comes to mind is that he cheated, although there is no suggestion of such a thing in the video, nothing to suggest he made a big mistake.

Jules goes back to her old life, backpacking and exploring, and she clearly enjoys it.

It relates to the song because she is practically taking on the world, going solo and visiting different places. There are clips of them doing things together which is what the song is about. I totally relate to this as I want to be with someone, I want to go and do things with someone, but I know that isn't going to happen any time soon, and I also feel like I'm going it alone just like she is, my plan is to get to London this year, and I'm sure I'll feel just like she does in this video, as I start my life in London, that's if I get there sooner rather than later.

  1. Martin Garrix is one my most loved artist i listen all his new old tunes. His voice has a sublime and great beat method for singing style while he sings a tune. A debt of gratitude is in order for sharing me such Martin Garrix's web journal. Martin Garrix Jacket

  2. You've got the video all confused. Jules goes on the trip after breaking up with her husband. She meets the guy in Nicaragua but clearly (at least to me) they're just hanging out having a good time; hence the handshake on the deck. The guy who calls at the end is not that guy on the beach but the estranged husband back home. Anyway. Great song and video by Garrix.
