Since we signed Andrew Verner in late 2008, we’ve been eagerly anticipating finishing up and releasing his first album with us. At long last we released Short Circuit, Late Night Drive on May 23rd. An animated mix of hard-hitting dance numbers and slower, dreamy synth melodies, the Late Night Drive E.P. works on so many levels. It’s a hybrid of some unique songwriting, advanced production, and a vision for a ‘complete work of art’. It’s as if each song incorporates a totally different style and focus than the one before it, and yet pulls together to form something more than the sum of its parts. In the end, it all blends together for one awesome release; “Late Night Drive” explores every nook of his robo-pop self, and in the end comes out on top as an all around extraordinary E.P. We are very proud.
“How We Speak” is the third track on the E.P., and its disco charm and catchy hook makes it stand out from the rest. The light percussion, paired with flowing synthesizer melodies and Verner’s lyrics produce an homage to old school disco in a modern, electronic form. The repetition of catchy lyrics and the bass line in contrast with the synthesizer makes this track one that is destined to be a hit on the dancefloor.
Not only is “Late Night Drive” the namesake of Verner’s EP, it is the final track, and its slow groove and flowing synth beat ties the previous five songs together. A heartfelt tune, it makes for the perfect ending to an already stunning E.P. Verner has created an impeccable synth beat that is hard to ignore and sure to keep playing back in your head.
But that’s not all! On top of the original six amazing tunes on Late Night Drive, we have two fantastic remixes provided by Sam Padrul out of Chicago as well as Binary’s own Fabian. Padrul slowed it down, and gave the song a wavy sound, the likes of Daft Punk. Padrul is a great up and coming DJ and he is definitely worth checking out, you can find his remix of “How We Speak” here. Fabian took the track in another direction and showed us that it is fully capable of blowing away full audiences on the dancefloor, in this hard hitting rendition:
Late Night Drive is available now and consists of six remarkable and dreamy tunes that are great to listen to every day of the week, whether you’re going out or staying in.
