Australian artist Wave Racer has linked up with US rapper & songwriter LunchMoney Lewis on new single ‘This N That’, out now via Astral People Recordings. Pairing LunchMoney Lewis’ auto tune vocals with a metallic, ultra-textured production, ‘This N That’ taps into the maximalist sound that Wave Racer has made his own.
“On the production side, there was a vital combination of determination, frustration and emotion that went into finishing this song, with more revisions, re-writes, do-overs and second-guessing than any song I’ve done before, which I think can be heard in some of the abrasive and distorted tones that intertwine the vocals,” Wave Racer explains.
“As such, I like to think this song’s production represents a growth and a transition between old and new sonic textures for me. Furthermore, having Lunchmoney Lewis on board was nothing less than a privilege. His songwriting abilities are second to none, and I learned a lot about song composition working with him. His vocals and unique lyrics carry this song in a way that no other vocalist could, and I’m so pleased with how the song came together after all our efforts.”
The track follows on from ‘Auto’, Wave Racer’s first single since returning from hiatus and ‘Summer Rain’, which featured the hip-hop vocals of fellow Australian talent Kwame and marked the first release on the freshly formed Astral People Recordings.
