Brisbane-based Indian Summer have had an incredible 2014. The duo, consisting of Gabe Gleeson and Chevy Long, hit it big with their single, "Shiner," which hit the top spot on HypeMachine and received millions of listens on SoundCloud and YouTube. The twosome also remixed notable artists like Elizabeth Rose (best known as a Flight Facilities collaborator) and the Ashton Shuffle. Then, they swung through the U.S. and Australia before landing on MTV and Mixmag's top producers from down under lists. With their new single "Loveweights," they're putting a cherry on top of an already huge year.
The track starts with a touching piano melody, before Shaqdi's vocals and some light drum machine play make their way to the forefront. Shaqdi gets to the chorus, where a hard-hitting beat takes over and melts faces. with sprinkles of vocal samples asserting themselves here and there. Things calm down a bit, ostensibly tapping out into nothing before ramping way back up into an aggressive, Flume-esque finale. We're not sure what's in the water down under these days, but we could use some of it to revive America's dance scene. "Loveweights" is available for purchase on December 19 on Sweat It Out Music.
