Auckland duo Chores (Nicole Thomas & Paula Yeoman) are back with a new single ‘Losing You’, showcasing another side to their sound and proving once again why they’re one of New Zealand’s hottest new dance acts.
Following support slots for Duke Dumont and The Chainsmokers, and ahead of a string of dates at some of NZ’s most popular festivals, the award-winning team (Thom Simmons and Sam Saunders) have enlisted the vocals of Jess Pollard, who featured on the first album by Australia’s RÜFÜS.
“We are massive RÜFÜS fans and we asked Tyrone Lyndqvist to sing - he declined multiple, multiple times. But much to our surprise - and delight - Jess agreed and 'Losing You' was born,” says Simmons.
While keeping their signature bright and edgy sound, ‘Losing You’ has a dark and moody vibe that’s brought to life by Pollard’s soulful voice and stays true to the meaning of the song.
“It’s about desperately clutching onto someone who you believe to be becoming distant. It also explores how people can get caught up within their own emotions when they feel they are losing someone, when in reality, it might just be their own perceptions.”
Catch Chores’ new live show this summer at Mutopia in Rotorua on December 2, Rhythm & Vines in Gisborne on December 31 and Homegrown in Wellington on April 7.
Chores – ‘Losing You’ featuring Jess Pollard – available from all DSPs on Friday November 24.
