Well if ‘Late Night’ by Sydney-based four piece Loretta hasn’t just gone and become one of our favourite pop songs of 2021 thus far!
Ellis, Max, Nico and Daryl have collectively infused their new single with the most wondrous feel-good pop vibes.
It’s so polished; so slick that we reckon that it wouldn’t sound out of place on a record by the likes of UK popsters Years & Years.
“‘Late Night’ recalls the events of the first 24 hours after you meet someone you’re completely infatuated with, a day in the life of any 20-something,” the boys explain. “Ellis brought in the initial idea and after being inspired by a conversation he’d had with a friend. Once he got started the song pretty much wrote itself.
“The rest of us fleshed out the arrangement a few different ways until we landed on something we were happy with.
“Following that some of our very talented friends had some fantastic ideas that really brought it all to life.”
There’s nothing about ‘Late Night’ we don’t love; it’s a seriously impressive three minute burst of energy and light.
Straight to the top of the class with you, Loretta!
