From only progressing from a string of bouncy releases such as their last single ‘OMG!’, Brighton based four-piece Fond Of Rudy return with new single ‘L O V E’, a sweetened cut of down-tempo alternative pop that combines 80s motifs and reflective lyrics into their own distinctive and lavish sound (self-described as ‘South Eastern Calypso Alt Pop’).
‘L O V E’ stands in its own lane from past material, the fluorescent glare of their past singles has been dimmed and replaced with the sultry flicker of candlelight. Lead singer Matt’s vocals float smoothly over the band’s luminous textures creating a bold and delicate track that could fall in line with work of Blood Orange or The 1975.
Speaking about the track, Fond Of Rudy say: “The track represents our take on a modern slow jam. It’s packed full of lust and emotion…tuning in to that persona of missing opportunities out of fear.”
