After bursting onto the scene with his debut single ‘Honey,’ Manchester-based The Super Late Night is stocked with an onslaught of releases, ready to stamp his sound firmly into the alt-pop world. The one-man producer and songwriter is about to embark on the second phase of his journey, a straight from the heart, to the heart indie-infused pop record that is undeniably catchy from the get-go. ‘If Not Now, Then When?’ is set to land on the 26th June via Homefire Recordings.
Fusing decades-worth of genres, few can lay claim to establishing their sound so early on, yet TSLN is breaking genre boundaries and producing eclectic and versatile music time and time again. Blending euphoric synth melodies, delicately crafted single-note guitar work and arena-sized vocal hooks, this is downright likeable pop music with an inimitable edge.
‘If Not Now, Then When?’ is a real-talk record that delves deep into nostalgic pop tones, whilst also embracing festival-sized production. On creating the record TSLN added:
“This was written in a session with a friend of mine in the summer of 2017. I brought most of the lyrics and the chords, and he helped me to shape it before I took it into the studio. Having a co-writer for this track really helped me organise my thoughts. The track originally came from a note I had in my phone for a long time that read “If not now, then when?” That had come from a conversation with a friend where I told him I intended to stop smoking (as all smokers do), he responded “if you can quit then, you can quit now,” and that message became the basis for this song. Incubated by the relationship I was in at the time the song quickly became more about confronting the ifs, buts and maybes of life and relationships, and the fear of committing to a change you can feel but may not want to face.”
After clocking up more than 30,000 streams on his first single ‘Honey,’ The Super Late Night is the artist you needed to be introduced to and is one to keep an eye on for 2020 and beyond.
