In a landscape littered with forgettable dance floor fodder, it’s refreshing to hear electronic music that makes you dance with a smile on your face. The Aston Shuffle have spent a long time away crafting music for their next album that unashamedly seeks this goal, and Comfortable was the first taste – a soulful, heart-starting and catch-cry classic that hit the mark squarely.
Now, the duo raises the bar once more and reveals the second single from their upcoming sophomore album, the emotive summer smash, Tear It Down.
Written and recorded in the depths of the London winter earlier this year with long-time collaborator Styalz Fuego and Ivor Novello award-winning, Golden Globe and Grammy-nominated Amanda Ghost (Florence & The Machine, Beyoncé, Scissor Sisters), Tear It Down is a warming, feel-good house jam, plain and simple. Charming Rhodes chords and soulful vocals pull you in, and the brooding, building beat just doesn’t let go ’til it’s done.
Tear It Down includes rubs from Ivan Gough, Indian Summer, Low Steppa, Adapt Or Die and SAFIA.
Out now on EMI via iTunes
