South London duo Soirées recently released their latest single ‘Borderline’ via Parisian tastemakers Kitsuné, and it’s filled with “dreamy R&B soundscapes and bouncy alt-pop rhythms”.
Following a series of collaborations on their respective projects SB and Blueyes, which garnered widespread critical acclaim, the duo spent a year immersed in songwriting sessions at their South London studio. It was from here that Soirées came together.
Inspired by the “cultural melting pot” of their South London surroundings Soirées’ understated production and ethereal vocals blend together harmoniously. Speaking about their new track, Producer/songwriter Sam Bartlett explains: “Borderline gives an insight into someone striving to achieve a personal milestone, who hasn’t quite got there yet.”
Vocalist Bronagh added: “Sam and I just wanted to get back to having fun with music without thinking too much about it. After a few months, we were sat on a pile of songs that we loved too much to keep to ourselves, and that’s where the idea to form Soirées came in.”
We’re loving Soirées’ laid back approach to making music. Listen to ‘Borderline’ below, and follow the band on Facebook for more updates.
