Beat The System is a band based in New York City. Not too long ago, they released an uplifting pop tune, entitled, “Chasing the High.”
Beat The System – “Chasing the High” single
“I can’t give up, ooh, maybe, I’m chasing the high. And if my luck runs dry, I’ll take my time riding the tide. Getting on with the flow has taken me all of these years. And even when I’m struck down, bottomed out on the ground, I’m living.” – lyrics
‘Chasing the High’ encourages listeners to never gave up on their dreams. During their journey, they will surely walk down lonely roads, and might not know if they’re heading in the right direction or not. However, they must be bold and continue chasing their dreams no matter what obstacles may come their way.
‘Chasing the High’ contains an inspiring narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. The mood-elevating tune possesses drum-driven instrumentation flavored with an electro-pop vibration. Furthermore, “Chasing the High” serves as a wonderful presentation of what listeners can expect to hear from Beat The System in the near future.
“If my luck runs dry, I’ll take my time riding the tide.”
“In the song, we attempt to take the listeners through a journey. The journey is fraught with disappointments, confusion, and unmet expectations. But as with all things, as long as we keep on keeping on, the only way out is up. This song is a dedication to the naysayers, the unbelievers, the ones who told us ‘you’re not good enough to make it.” Because without them, there’s a possibility that we wouldn’t have made it as far as we did.” – Beat The System explained
In 2005, brothers Gerald (drummer) and Stewart Sellan (guitarist) founded Beat The System. The pair decided to move from Malaysia to the United States to pursue music full time. Now, they are joined by Adrian Puan (songwriter) and Shannon Gibbons (singer), a 2020 American Idol qualifier (most known for her stunning audition of Etta James’s “I’d Rather Go Blind” song).

“Oftentimes, we find ourselves in a place of stagnation, a waiting period, the calm before the storm some might say. It isn’t a fun place to be, it’s where we’re bombarded by self-doubts, restlessness, and insecurity. However, just like all things in life, there are ups and then there are downs. It’s the in-betweens that shape our character. That said, we always have the choice of coming out stronger.” – Beat The System stated
Beat The System takes a glass-half-full approach to both music and life. They dish up electro-pop sugar-coated with feel-good sprinkles, living by the mantra that there’s always more room for positivity. Their mission is to influence the world via their uplifting Pop sound.
