When one door closes, another one opens. Such was the case for Brooklyn producer Pete Dougherty, aka Moon Boots, who after the disbandment of his former French Express collective, found a new home for his slick, soulful house sounds on London label Anjunadeep. In 2015, he first appeared on the Above & Beyond-founded imprint with "Red Sky," and now he's gearing up to release his debut album, First Landing.
Out August 4, we've already heard singles "Tear My Heart" and "The Life Aquatic," and today we're sharing "I Want Your Attention" featuring Australian singer-songwriter Fiora. Sweet, swirling, and serene from the first note, the vocal-heavy track contains all the flirtatiousness of locking eyes with someone from across the dancefloor.
"It's got a few of my favorite things: soulful chords, cosmic arps, ambient textures, a galloping bass, and crisp vocals and lush harmonies by the amazing Fiora," the producer told THUMP over email. "We want your attention and we'll relieve the tension."
