Antony & Cleopatra return with hypnotic single, ‘Why Don’t You Just Call Me’
British/Australian electronic duo Alexander Burnett and Anita Blay (aka ANTONY & CLEOPATRA) are back to bless our ears with their new single ‘Why Don’t You Just Call Me’. Their silky smooth soulful sound brings a classic, yet modern taste to the electronic music scene and in typical Antony & Cleopatra fashion, their latest track is equally perfect, professional and eloquently simple house music that reels listeners in further and further with each listen.
Coming off the back of their debut EP Hurts Like Hell that was released last year, these prolific songwriters are no newcomers to the scene. Having collaborated with artists such as Motez, Jaded and Black Caviar, the pair have developed their groove-laden sound into something unique that can be enjoyed by fans both new and old.
The single sees the duo hone into their signature sound that is inspired by late 80’s house and 70’s disco, drawing you in through repetition, rhythm and subtle melodies that leaves you dancefloor ready. Typically finding inspiration in the heavy bass sounds of today, ‘Why Don’t You Just Call Me’ somehow detaches itself from the usual house driven inspiration and instead turns to the 90’s disco fever era, creating a new sound and motive that will leave you craving more.
Antony & Cleopatra have once again used their winning combo of hypnotic vocals and transfixed beats that take bits and pieces from different genres to create a forward-thinking approach to electronic music.
If you need any more convincing, the duo have also been gearing up to head on an Australian tour this May/June to perform a string of headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, alongside their support slot on the Running Touch tour.
