Australia-based Brit @Latchmeresound works the dancefloor goods with promising EP “Lovedrunk”

LATCHMERE, Lovedrunk (EP)

Talk about packing an unassuming dance floor wallop!  I’ve been writing about the songs of dance music scene relative newcomer Latchmere over the last year or so, and upon the release of his excellent debut 5 song EP Lovedrunk this week, I got to find out more about this Brit who relocated to Australia a few years back.  

Latchmere is musician Shaun Galvin, whose influences are more contemporary such as Calvin Harris, Snakehips, Flume, and Kaytranada, yet some of the love songs in Lovedrunk bask in beats and rhythms that I would associate with old school Chicago deep house, such as in the brilliant, club-worthy opener “Need Your Heart” with a super uncredited female vocal.  The vibe throughout the EP is definitely summery, with the mysterious melody and house rhythm of “Monster”, featuring the fine voice of a woman named Dylan, and brighter, tropical flavour in “Deep End” with vocals by Chariots.  “Got Me” features another uncredited vocalist (this time male) with underlying soulful melody and hip hop rhythm surrounded by contemporary electronics.  Latchmere uses acousting-sounding drums, percussion, and piano to enhance the synths at the root of the music.  The last song on the EP is the title track, an instrumental, which seems somewhat out of place and without the infectiousness of the preceding songs.

Do go and lend your support to Latchmere’s Lovedrunk!  “Need Your Heart” and “Monster” are definite house-bangers in-waiting, and you can hear the entire EP at the link above.  Pick up Lovedrunk at your favourite digital music store.
