Premiere: Late Night Therapy sign to Mugatunes and takes us on a thrilling ‘Drive’ – the pulsating electro-pop single featuring Lily Belle.

The enormously talented Harry Suttor is Late Night Therapy and we are very honoured to premiere his new single ‘Drive’ (featuring Lily Belle), accompanied by news that Late Night Therapy has signed to the cool Mugatunes label.

‘Drive’ sets off on a dynamic percussive beat and washes of natural sampled sounds with a synth undercurrent. It is immediately immersive and atmospheric, and Lily Belle’s vocals whisper soft and velvet with a liquid and sensuous, languid tone. As the bass kicks in, the song dramatically intensifies: with a dreamy pop magnificence swept on an arpeggiated flow.

I immediately think of the brilliant The Beloved with the EDM trance mix underlying an euphoric pop blast, with a touch of New Order. A slight off-kilter synth towards the conclusion also reminds me of Blancmange. The combination leads to something quite exciting and unique.

Suttor says:

I was back at my childhood home in the rainforest village of Wooloweyah, a place where the rest of the world always seems to drift away. It’s my favourite place to write music and this was the intention of the trip. A childhood friend close enough to be a sister, Lily Belle arrived at my makeshift studio with a small note book of lyrics. I spent half an hour putting together an idea for the music and we then recorded a duet of her vocals and mine. Over the next few months whilst working on other music I kept coming back to the track every now and then expanding it to the now six and a half minute long psych/house journey. I’m really proud of this track and the place it comes from, I think it’s really unique and I love the way it constantly unfolds and evolves. Thank you Lily for your lyrics and voice, a memory sealed in time through song.

‘Drive’ is a dynamic and ethereal track that has an expansive horizon that ebbs and flows and quickens the pulse through each subtle shift, like the changing colours of a sunset.

This is a tremendous slice of electro-dance pop:

‘Drive’ is out everywhere tomorrow. This is exactly the kind of therapy everyone needs at any time.
