Watch ONR and Phantogram’s Sarah Barthel Play “Must Stop” on a Cross-Continental “Neighborhoods”
The duo perform their joint single from Annan, Scotland and Los Angeles, CA respectively.
Last month, ONR—the solo project of Scottish songwriter Robert Shields—followed up his collaboration with Nile Rodgers with another high-caliber joint track alongside Phantogram’s Sarah Barthel. A mantra of sorts for both parties, “Must Stop” fuses more than just both artists’ musical sensibilities, laying out a fairly relatable flaw of “being repeatedly hurt” by falling in love with everyone they sleep with, as Shields put it.
Today the duo have reteamed for a “Neighborhoods” session spanning the globe, with Shields playing the song on guitar at an empty soccer stadium near his home in Annan, Scotland and Barthel dueting with him outside her home in LA’s Hollywood Hills. Watch their performance below.
