“Slurring guitar chords and a heavy bassline progress nicely onto groovy guitar picking, married to smooth high vocals from the new dreampop duo. Definitely one to watch out for”- GQ Magazine
“The brilliant combination of 80s groove, dreamy vocals and synthy backline makes you feel like you’ve jumped straight into a time machine.”- Fresh On The Net
“It’s a speedy number, sure to get the pulses racing, and it’s a perfect way to saunter into this weekend with a skip in your step”- The Line Of Best Fit
The latest single by the Swedish electro-pop act Death In The Afternoon is called We Don’t Have To Go Out Tonight and this time it oozes extra Scandi- coolness and the effortless talent for their tasteful sonic design. Christian and Linda are a team (in business and beyond), who always divide each task into two: from song-writing through singing and on to production. Each of them does an equal amount of everything, and it shines through in their composition. The two aspects of DITA’s sonic identity creates a synchronized feeling of tension and release which are always present in the track. The multiple layers of the male and female vocals compliment each other smoothly by creating a soft yet powerful veil over the song. By Christian an Linda’s love and talent for music (as well as each other) they have already gained the support of GQ Magazine, The Line Of Best Fit, JaJaJa Music and Nordic By Nature to name a few.
Keeping their sonic identity perfectly intact, DITA make sure that just like its predecessors, the third single remains airy, dreamy, tastefully arranged, filled with stunning vocal lines and hooky melodies. Taken from their forth-coming self-titled LP,We Don’t Have To Go Out Tonight begins with a steady beat and lures the listener into its eerily stunning sound right away. Playing with the evergreen romanticism softly implied by bands like M83 or Young Galaxy, DITA are all about looking skyward and actually providing the sonic jetpacks essential to getting there.
The nostalgic feel of this mid-tempo track presents the widely respected Scandi winning formula of writing songs filled with skill, quality and creativity. Its tempered instrumental atmosphere is given a steady rise and a contrasting sense of melancholia by the distant lead vocals, leaving the listener hopelessly enchanted throughout and wanting more.
We Don’t Have To Go Out Tonight will be released via Summer Heart’s label Sommarhjärta, and it will be available for sale and download everywhere from the 30thOctober.
