Australian duo Yuto. are coming back to us this week with their exciting new single ‘Apple & Peach’, which has them once again teaming up with Sydney hip-hop/R&B artist BOY SODA for his mad vocal skills.
Yuto. is made up of siblings Daylan & Coben McDonald who make a unique blend of electro-pop/R&B/hip-hop/soul music that can be likened to a mix between Louis The Child, BAYNK and Hayden James, and their latest offering ‘Apple & Peach’ is a fine example of this.
As the boys explain below, ‘Apple & Peach’ was one of those songs that was quick and easy to make, and they had the perfect vocalist in mind for it as well…
“We wrote, recorded & mixed this song super quickly at our home studio in Melbourne. After working with BOY SODA on our previous single ‘Hazy’, we were really keen to work with him again so we sent him the demo for ‘Apple & Peach’. He got back to us pretty much straight away and he absolutely nailed it.” – Yuto.
“The song to me was a fun way to look at my horrific money management skills through a funny story line haha. We’ve all thought at some point ‘If only money grew on trees’ because financial stress is the worst and I wanted to look at it in a light way.” – BOY SODA
Daylan & Coben have a lot of fun experimenting with different genres, styles and sounds, and ‘Apple & Peach’ is a result of that experimentation. They hope that it will resonate with people of many differing musical tastes, while also making them eager to hear what else they might have in the works.
“We have never heard music like this before, especially in Australia, so we are super keen to see the response to this new single. It’s a blend of electronic music with a whole lot of other stuff thrown in, and that excites us.
A goal of ours is to have an undistinguishable song that people just froff on (best feeling as a listener). We want to surprise the listener and keep them on their toes, and we feel ‘Apple & Peach’ could be that song.” – Yuto.
‘Apple & Peach’ is available everywhere now including Spotify & Apple Music.
