Since forming Timeflies in 2010, Rob Resnick and Cal Shapiro have played offtheir distinct sensibilities to build a boundary-warping yet instantly catchy hybridof pop, hip-hop, and electronic music. Last year, the East Coast-bred duodecided to shake up their creative process even further by relocating to LosAngeles and ditching the typical album-based approach to making music. Theirfirst release following the move was the early-2016 single “Once In A While,"which quickly amassed more than 245 million streams on Spotify, and ultimatelyemerged as one of their biggest hits to date. Brightly textured and blissfully melodic, “Once In A While” looks at the upheavalthat Timeflies experienced upon relocating to L.A. from Manhattan. Throughout“Once In A While,” Timeflies amp up the track’s emotional intensity by alternating  Cal’s soulful vocals with his seamless rapping style. “The idea behind the song isthat, even if you feel like your whole life is in flux, there are always thosemoments that feel perfect, where you can just dance and feel good,” says Cal.
