AR/CO have shared their new single Night Feels, the follow-up to their Franky Wah collaboration Under The Sun.
The rising UK dance scene stars have released the track alongside an official video.
The track finds AR/CO continuing to keep the summer vibe at the forefront. Like previous single Call Me By My Name, Night Feels also lives up to AR/CO’s ambition to mix Daft Punk’s crowd-pleasing yet sophisticated approach to electronica with some of MGMT’s maximalist production and swirling psychedelia. Speaking about the track, the duo said, “It’s about the perfect person who matches your late night settings. Whether it looks like a sweaty festival or club or mid-week chill – it’s somebody who helps makes the nights into lifelong memories. This song is a shout out to our friends and family! We wrote it in a few hours with Kyle in sunny LA, Nick and Shaun helped us wrap it up. It feels like year long good times to us, so we really wanted to share that.”
The London-based duo both have international backgrounds, which further flavours the AR/CO sound. Leo is British with Trinidadian roots which go back to his grandfather, while Mali-Koa was born in Sydney, Australia to a family with Maori heritage before she relocated to the UK. They formed AR/CO during lockdown, making music customised for the unity and togetherness that was so lacking at the time.
