Nu disco outfit Bad Business Club have teamed up with singer-songwriter 79.5 for a new track, “Silent Lies”.
How did the collaboration came about?
The collaboration came about when Bad Business Club’s producer Morgan Wiley (Midnight Magic, Adeline) introduced Alex Vans and Kate Mattison, the two lead songwriters of each group. Alex had some feel good disco lyrics and a Bill Evans-inspired jazzy chord progression sketched out, while Kate came in to add some of 79.5’s signature unison vocal choruses.
The result is a structure that’s difficult to pin down. With multiple different choruses, an instrumental bridge, 4 lead vocalists, and a Blondie-esque spoken-word section, “Silent Lies” is a nu disco track that defies easy categorization. It’s a fun, summery song that’s perfect for dancing – or for lying silent under the stars.
Bad Business Club and 79.5 have created a track that’s both catchy and complex, with enough hooks to keep you coming back for more. “Silent Lies” will be out on Bunnyman Bridge Records on all major streaming platforms on the 15th of July.
