‘Backseat Heartbeat’, from Yamba musician Late Night Therapy (the new musical project from Harry Suttor), is a smooth funky slice of sunshine that canters along at a high-stepping trot, tempered with an enthralling air of melancholy in the vocals . With a disco glittering pace, there is a layered synth bubble to the track with distant horns framing the soundscape.
Late Night Therapy recounts the challenges behind the writing:
This release and the many tracks to follow come after a long journey of self-doubt that has left me with a huge backlog of music waiting for a chance to see the light of day. A problem with my hearing forced me to take an extended break from music. It took this break for me to gain the perspective needed to once again believe in my art.
Indeed there is a cathartic exposition – music that shines with positivity. Indeed, the very name of the project stems from this:
The process of creating music late at night when there are no distractions, it’s quiet, dark and I can completely immerse myself in it has always been therapy for my state of mind. This is where the name “Late Night Therapy” came from. Music is my outlet, it keeps me in the moment and leaves me fulfilled
The result is an emotional release: a journey with an uplifting lilt and a funky sensibility:
‘Backseat Heartbeat’ will be available worldwide on Friday, 11 March 2022 through all the usual download and streaming sites. Late Night Therapy will be launching the single at Yamba Golf Club in Yamba on Saturday, 9 April 2022.
