Today, Sharer are pleased to reveal their debut song “Body Tonight” to the world. SHARER is Young & Sick (Nick van Hofwegen) and JD Samson (MEN / Le Tigre). Alongside Nick and JD, the vocals on “Body Tonight” are by Jo Lampert (Tune-Yards, AVAN LAVA) and Xavier Smith. The single will come out on August 21st, with remixes from Midnight Magic and LEFTI.
Stereogum premiered the debut and says: “…could host a variety of dances from the Cha-Cha to the Tango — it’s just that diverse in its sound, from jazz to soul to EDM. The harmonies in the chorus (“Bring me closer to your body tonight / Bring me closer to your lovin’ all right”) are just phenomenal.”
“I used to go see JD simply as a fan while living in London. Her live shows were always absolutely fantastic, leaving me a sweaty mess. When the opportunity arose for me to work with her, I jumped at it. A few months later, here is the beginning of our new friendship. I couldn’t be more excited to share it.” – Nick van Hofwegen (Young & Sick)
“Nick and I were matched up to write songs for other people, but after about two seconds of sharing, we knew what we had was something completely and utterly ours. Love and respect for your collaborators is so important, and working with Nick is such a beautiful expression of our mutual admiration. I love our process and can’t wait until the world gets to share the joy.” – JD Samson
“… this collection of dancefloor-ready electro-soul, funk and disco tracks has been a long time coming.” – WNYC
“Untethered from disco’s four-to-the-floor pulse, the nine-piece New York group of DFA alumnae rides aloft a breezy synthesizer melody and swirls of dub delay”–SPIN
“… disco, boogie, and old-school electro sounds for a modern scene.” – XLR8R
The psychedelic-soul army Midnight Magic has struck again with their highly anticipated debut full length, Walking The Midnight Streets, out now on their own Midnight Sun Sound. Since bursting onto the scene in 2009 with a series of 12” singles, including the dance floor smash “Beam Me Up,” the band has become revered for their irresistibly catchy hooks and seductive live show. Revered by Lucky, SPIN, RCRD LBL, Interview, XLR8R and more, the new album is a blend of funk, soul, and electro-tinged disco. It is available for purchase on iTunes and all other digital retailers.
Space invader b-side, the band has released “Threshold” as a free MP3. Also, you can hear the full album streaming where it premiered at AOL Spinner through the end of the week.
