Only a few weeks after debuting on Armada Music with ‘Other Voices’, American electronic music mainstay Le Youth has upped the ante with another gorgeous track released on the Amsterdam-, New York- and London-based record label. Steeped in his authentic sound from start to finish, ‘Underwater’ picks up where its predecessor left off for a sonic experience that’ll leave listeners gasping for air.
Deep-diving into all that lies beneath the surface, Le Youth’s second-ever single on Armada Music makes for an insanely compelling story that grabs and doesn’t let go. Juggling tender harmonies and soothing melodies with warm vocals that ooze with heartfelt emotion, ‘Underwater’ is exactly the kind of record that’s best enjoyed on infinite repeat mode.
Le Youth: “I spent a lot of time on ‘Underwater’, which went through a lot of different versions over the last two years. Not surprisingly, I ended up releasing the first version I ever did. I think it’s a great fit with ‘Other Voices’ musically, which is why we decided to release them together. I hope everyone will enjoy both!”
Wes James a.k.a. Le Youth has been a major force in dance music since his crossover hits ‘C O O L’ and ‘Dance With Me’ stormed the U.K. charts in 2013. Heavily inspired by the deep melodic techno and progressive sounds that came out of Europe from the likes of Sasha, John Digweed, Eric Prydz and more recently Lane 8, Yotto, and Ben Böhmer, he racked up numerous records and remixes plus a quarter of a billion streams in the seven years since, continuously elevating his artistry not through his musical output, but also as a performer through his own headline PRGRSSN tour and his recent inclusion in Lane 8’s ‘Brightest Lights Tour 2020’. Now with Armada Music on board, he enters into a new career stage that starts off flawlessly with ‘Other Voices’ and ‘Underwater’.
