Australian producer PACES has brought forth a light and bubbly new single full of pop-inspired delight titled ‘Back Around’ which features the radiant vocals of Sarah Saint James, and is the latest release on PACES’ new imprint Off Leash Records.
PACES utilises those bright and buoyant synths that have become synonymous with all of his releases, and transfers further colour and liveliness throughout the duration when the upbeat percussion comes to the forefront. ‘Back Around’ maintains a minimalism in its approach with the aforementioned instrumentation holding the core of the piece together, and in doing so allows James’ sensational melodies to take centre stage and command significant presence.
“I met Sarah Saint James last year while on a writing trip to Sydney. The rapper who I’d planned to work with had cancelled at the last minute, leaving me with a free day. Sarah and I had been speaking via DMs about doing a songwriting session one day. I hit her back saying “how about right now?”. We had a great session and actually wrote my previous single ‘Dear Driver’ that day. Since then I’ve featured in one of Sarah’s music videos (brushing my teeth lol), we’ve worked on a few more songs, and she’s become one of my favourite songwriters and collaborators. I’m super stoked to feature this amazing new artist on my next single, Back Around!” – PACES
