Blende gets the summer off to an early start with the smooth “Back to Summertime”, with vocals courtesy of The Rapture’s Mattie Safer. This track reflects the feeling of longing that inevitably follows any truly stellar summer vacation, and the accompanying bygone summer romance. Blende continues his streak of danceable electro-pop hits in the vein of artists like Oliver Nelson, but adds some unexpected accessories that build on his prior work.
Choruses are linked by gritty synths, reminiscent of certain French dance music archetypes, and Safer’s vocals bring a newfound urgency to the traditionally carefree nu-disco tradition. Check out this track below!
