Following the success of Spike’s Song, Montreal’s EhRah returns with a collaboration alongside Los Angeles’ VENMC for a retro-futuristic banger.
Melding VENMC’s flavorful and catchy vocal hooks alongside EhRah’s clean and melodic productions, they’ve combined their musical flair while taking influence from acts such as Daft Punk, The Weeknd and Calvin Harris to come up with their latest musical hit: ‘Gamma Loner’. Gamma Loner talks about a lonesome entity as it finds its way through space searching for its perfect love.
Reminiscent of songs such as Instant Crush by Daft Punk, Gamma Loner is steeped in 80s retro influences. VENMC’s vocoded hooks melts pleasantly with warm synths and lush chords to get you groovin’ before you even realize it.
Gamma Loner will be released on Aztec Records on February 18.
After the worldwide success of her debut album ‘Believer’, LAU’s long awaited sophomore album ‘Circumstance’ is finally here.
What is it like to fall in love in these crazy pandemic times? What about falling for someone miles away that we’ve never met? Is it real love or just a fantasy? In this new album, LAU talks about the challenges, the uncertainty, the crazy circumstance she has found herself in, the ups and downs of “virtual romancing” in the distance, and falling in love with a complete stranger that she’s never met (yet). LAU explores the bittersweet feelings of happiness (to finally fall in love again), mixed with the anxiety and the uncertainty of longing for someone that we’ve only seen on a screen, added to the frustration of not being able to travel to meet them in person.
LAU recorded most of this album in her new home in Barcelona (Spain) throughout 2021 and finished recording the album in her hometown (Buenos Aires, Argentina), creating ten fantastic Synthpop / Retrowave tracks (and a couple of Disco-Pop songs) produced by international producers like Brian Skeel (USA), Zak Vortex (UK), Ends 84 (France), Saint Innocent (France), Popcorn Kid (India), Adam Siana (Sweden) and TAKTA (Norway).
This is a truly global album, which includes LAU’s popular cover version of Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors released last year.
