A genre-warping three piece, you’ll probably recognise Loyal’s distinctive sound from their debut track, “Blue & The Green”, which proved one of last year’s most exciting sleeper releases. With support from Annie Mac and Huw Stephens, it’s little wonder that Loyal then signed to prestigious imprint Good Years (BANKS, Francis and the Lights, Mick Jenkins) and are following up their 2015 success with the freshly dropped single “House For You”. A combination of distinctive vocal talent and richly atmospheric house production, the songs evocative lyrics and disco tinged influences make for a perfect Friday evening track.
Still, if you gonna get ready to “House For You”, then Loyal’s exclusive Wonderland playlist is for that post-club haze and those sunrise AM chill session. From foot tapping dance numbers to warmly tinged yet spacey instrumentals, you’re gonna want to plug in and float off to this one.
