‘me&her’ is the synth-filled new single from Australian artist JVLY. It sees him team up with Swiss producer DRKTMS and was inspired by JVLY’s new analogue synthesiser; textured electronic patterns can be heard in a production brimming with warmth. The smooth, soul flecked beat dances along a vivacious bass line – providing a rhythmic foundation upon which JVLY’s gleaming vocals glide effortlessly.
“I had just pretty much cut my arm off to get this amazing analogue synth and was fiddling with it when I came up with these sounds and this chord progression. Honestly, I wasn’t really trying to write a song at the time as I was just learning the ins and outs of designing sounds on this thing, and that’s when I hatched that pulsing synth that runs throughout the song.” – JVLY
“I’ve been listening to a lot of dream-pop lately like Men I Trust so I’m really into rich sounding synths. I sent ‘me&her’ to my friend Luca (DRKTMS) who slowed the whole thing down to a much smoother tempo and added some really nice touches to the song. It was cool collaborating with him on the vocal ideas as well, bouncing ideas back and forth before finding a good blend of our own perspectives.” – JVLY
