Yamba-based artist Late Night Therapy has just revealed their enthralling debut single Backseat Heartbeat – self-recorded/produced by the artist himself and co-mixed with Luke Million.
Beginning with adroit electronics and warm synthesisers, Backseat Heartbeat is four minutes of heterogenous production, layered with motifs that float effortlessly through carefully crafted soundscapes. Strident guitars compliment the polyphonic sonority, while the graceful vocals guide the resonant melody above the mix, judiciously navigating the song’s memorable structure.
Late Night Therapy talks about the meaning behind Backseat Heartbeat: “This release and the many tracks to follow come after a long journey of self-doubt that has left me with a huge backlog of music waiting for a chance to see the light of day. A problem with my hearing forced me to take an extended break from music. It took this break for me to gain the perspective needed to once again believe in my art.”
Late Night Therapy is the new musical project from Harry Suttor. Taking cues from influences such as Tame Impala, Daft Punk and RÜFÜS DU SOL, his combination of live instrumentation and the unbounded potentials of electronic production to create an organic, evolving sound that reflects the fundamentals of his song subjects. “The process of creating music late at night when there are no distractions, it’s quiet, dark and I can completely immerse myself in it has always been therapy for my state of mind. This is where the name Late Night Therapy came from. Music is my outlet, it keeps me in the moment and leaves me fulfilled.”
In the coming weeks, Late Night Therapy will reveal an accompanying music video for Backseat Heartbeat.
