If his last LP, ‘Soft’ peeked interest, then ‘Losing it’, the new single from New York City based singer songwriter Luke Rathborne will knock you to the (dance)floor. It’s taken from his upcoming long player ‘Again’, due out in march on his own label True Believer, and he’s drafted in Ted Young (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth) o production duties.
Its glam-funk-indie rock (really, take a listen), with this irresistible melody that just melts your heart right from the off. Rathborne lays down his falsetto vocal, while underneath there’s layers of synths, glittering electronics and Blondie like new wave guitars, while drummer Jamie Alegre shuffles and drives in equal measure. Think War on Drugs/Tame Impala and your somewhere close. Really, its that good.
