Out via the Nina Las Vegas-helmed NLV Records, "Back Seat" is a hip-shaking acid house triumph. It's also Lunoe's first original single of the year, marking an exciting return for the Australian dance music veteran.
The song shines bright with Owusu's silky smooth vocals. They're perfectly matched by an infectiously funky bassline from Aussie artist Touch Sensitive, guaranteed to be stuck in your head for days.
And those aren't the only friends who pitched in, according to Lunoe. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Jack Glass of Bag Raiders provided back-end support, while the original demo came from a 2019 session with Channel Tres. Even its music video came from a handful of collaborators: friends, partners and family who shot its clips on iPhones during lockdown.
