Indie-pop duo STEVANS return with their latest single ‘P.L.A.Y.I.N.G’, a ludicrously catchy synth-pop production. Oozing in nostalgia throughout, the artists combine modern indie rock with a heavy dose of 80s disco to create an infectious sound. STEVANS are no strangers to the music industry, having made their debut back in 2006. Since then they’ve continuously delivered feel good anthems including the hits ‘The Backyard’ and ‘When The Light Is Gone’. Consistently evolving, the duo’s latest single sees them deliver what could very well be the sound of the summer.
The release pulls a broad range of influences from the likes of Daft Punk, Oasis and Imagine Dragons. Mixing the old with the new, STEVANS forge their own lane and we live for it. Speaking more on the release, Yvan explained: “P.L.A.Y.I.N.G is a fresh summer song, that hopefully will get the people to enjoy the first days of summer, seeing a bright light at the end of the COVID tunnel! It’s a seduction song, funny, light, couple song. Hey people, let’s not take everything too seriously, ok??”
For everyone the last 12 months have been a struggle, to say the least, so you have to give the duo credit for taking a light hearted approach with ‘P.L.A.Y.I.N.G’, just simply trying to spread a bit of much needed joy. That joy resonates throughout the nostalgic, synth-pop style of the production, where you can’t help but move throughout the chorus. It’s a formula that has always worked for STEVANS and now over the course of three albums, the duo has really left its mark on the musical landscape. It’s even taken them onto the stages of some of the biggest festivals in the world including Paleo Festival and Montreux Jazz festival.
Making their mark on 2021 with this latest release, STEVANS look to the rest of the year with positive energy and it could very well be a huge year for the artists. With any luck festivals will be going ahead, in which case they prime to hit stages once again with an all-new storming set of soul-stirring songs, with their sights set on the stratosphere. We’re looking forward to hearing more of that ever-infectious sound.
