[PREMIER] Attaque – Let It Down
Let It Down is the dramatic new single from London producer Attaque (aka Dominic Gentry).
A master at creating electronic soundscapes, Attaque has been one of my favourite (as well at Lauren Lavern’s at BBC6) producers over the last year. Seeing him perform his album On Ly Ou at the Sebright Arms was a highlight of my electronic gig calendar; it was one of those all encompassing shows that empty your mind of the mundane and bring so much focus you feel like you’ve been meditating.
Let It Down is out via Bad Life on June 8. It features the vocals of Daniel Hunter who sounds remarkably like Native Young who had a starring role in the last single Future Earth. Attaque has a thing for weirdness it seems. Hunter’s ethereal vocals are bizarre enough to compliment the dimension blurring layers of Let It Down. Actually, it feels like Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack to Interstellar may have held influence over the shiver inducing track.
Speaking of time travel: the film clip is shot on Super8 giving it a vintage quality that Instagram can’t.
He’s a mover and shaker too. There’s a Ghostpoet and Max Cooper remimxes coming your way next week.
Attaque will be playing at the Hoxton Sq Bar & Grill on May 20. Tickets here. Some producers can be dull live, but I assure this one ain’t.
