Adelaide native Luke Million is pulling out all the pop stops on his latest single ‘Heard It On The Radio’.
Not only has he roped in the addition pop powers of Sydney’s Touch Sensitive, he’s also got Asta on board to provide a stunning vocal.
“The track was born in Touch Sensitive’s studio,” Luke reveals in a statement. “We had been jamming on a disco tip for an hour and then decided to drop the BPM and head into the synth wave realm.”
“We picked a random patch on a DX7 and the moment I touched the keyboard and the sound came out, the mood was set. We connected with the textures of an ’80s soundscape courtesy of the DX7 being joined with an M1 and the Arturia Fairlight emulation.
“We knew we had something special but the track sat on a hard drive and would not be rediscovered to almost a year later.”
The result is a song that’s absolutely been worth the wait.
The irony is that ‘Heard It On The Radio’ is a song that, apart from our national broadcaster Triple J, you probably won’t hear on the radio, given commercial radio’s continuing piss-poor support of Australian music.
But you absolutely should. It’s brilliant.
