For some of the freshest new music with Italian roots, listeners should bask in the sun-drenched goodness of DJ and multi-instrumentalist LOELASH’s latest single “Somebody New,” premiering today on EARMILK. Taken from his forthcoming album Fantasia, the upbeat new song features collaboration with fellow Italian artists, the alt-pop duo Palmaria (formerly M w S) for a gorgeous track that will keep the summer vibes flowing well into autumn.
The pairing of LOELASH and Palmaria has undeniable synergy on “Somebody New,” with bubbling instrumentals providing a perfect backdrop for vocalist Giulia’s tender and impactful vocals as she sings about embracing new eras in an evolving life. LOELASH’s production is understated and pristine while Francesco’s bright and funky guitar harmonies provide delightful added textures. At the forefront of the track and its message, though, are the infectious hooks where Giulia sings, “Don’t you want to be somebody new / I’ll be somebody new.” With a beat that will get listeners dancing and a message of hope and self-discovery, LOELASH and Palmaria have found magic together, and we can only hope that “Somebody New” is just the beginning of a fruitful collaborative relationship.
