‘Driveway’ is the latest single from New Zealand artist Late June, and quite an impressive one at that. He’s teamed up with Los Angeles songstress Courtney Drummey (known for her cover of Katy Perry’s “I Kissed A Girl”) for her golden vocal sounds, which work so perfectly well against Late June’s nostalgic production style and a pulsing hypnotic beat. This is a very easy song to get lost in.
“Driveway was a way of communicating a familiar nostalgic/sad feeling when passing driveways around my neighbourhood reflecting on when life was normal. I wrote this soft piano instrumental and had played it in my head often when I went for walks, trying to perfect everything on it and make the atmosphere so hopeful but also vast.
When I had received Courtneys incredible lyrics & vocals I had finally felt like the song was finished and it was time to announce this new change in style.” – Late June
