Latchy sings a “Soda Dream”
Latchy’s latest track, “Soda Dream”, is a hit of sugary pop to help you escape the world’s current woes. The Singapore-based Australian artist’s new release is the follow up to his Triple J DIY Super group entry “Stuck”, which earned radio play on the station and rave reviews. “Stuck” also came hot on the heels of Latchy’s first release for 2020, “Jacuzzi”, which was supported with live shows in the heady days when that was still possible.
“Soda Dream” is an exercise in lockdown collaboration recorded between three countries with the original track laid down by Latchy in Singapore before live bass was provided by Melbourne musician stalwart Kyle Goulding (Kilo). Long time collaborator Jack Arentz (Haxx, Kult Kyss) provided more production and the mix in Melbourne before it was sent off to the US for mastering with Huntley Miller (Bon Iver, Zedd).
“This song took on a life of its own once I got Kyle and Jack involved and it was amazing to be able to bounce off the guys” Latchy tells us. “These are people who are really part of our scene. You’ve probably seen them play if you’ve been out to watch live music in Melbourne in the last three years. So it’s been real fun to try new things and work together remotely given none of us are able to play together live at the moment”.
Latchy will be playing a series of streamed gigs to support the release starting with Isol-aid#21.
