Kings favorite XPLOR, the synth-pop duo, released the new song ‘Recover’, the first offering in 2016. They built a solid following off of the debut single “Heartbreak“, and decided to switch directions a bit with the new song. The duo notes, “I released recover in 2015 in an attempt to ride the wave of “Heartbreak” which brought some attention towards the project. I decided to take the song down because I felt it was not the right time and I wanted to give it new life. The song comes a place of disappointment in a relationship but hoping things would still work even though deep inside you know it wont.
