Illinois-based songwriter Trevor Sensor has release a new single and music video titled “The Money Gets Bigger.” The single will be available tomorrow March 31 via Jagjaguwar, and will appear on Sensor’s forthcoming debut album. “The Money Gets Bigger” was produced by Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado, and features backing vocals from Julien Ehrlich and bass from Max Kakacek, both of Whitney—watch the video above.
Sensor, a 23-year-old from a small town in Illinois, seems on the brink of fame with his forthcoming debut album and tour dates. The new single sounds pretty solid, and further establishes Sensor’s reputation for nasally, gritty vocals combined with a catchy beat. The song is full of meaning, but remains surprisingly accessible. In a statement, Sensor explained the inspiration behind the song:
An observation of America—the horrors that occur in a society at large, and behind the closed doors of dysfunctional family homes. It’s a need for something – the yearning to be somebody people admire and adore in a world that seems void of significance. To find meaning in the limelight, and the despair we all feel when we are not the chosen ones to bask in it. In America, this is our brass ring—to be applauded for our supposed efforts and be beloved by strangers.
We’ll certainly keep an eye on what Sensor brings to the table in the coming years. While we wait for the forthcoming album, revisit 2016 Paste Cloud video of Sensor performing live at Davenport below. Further down, find Sensor’s soon-to-be-expanded slate of tour dates.
