Up-and-coming New York artist and producer Sean Turk and NZ alt-pop Queen Theia join forces to deliver the banging tune, ‘1Night’.
‘1Night’ premiered online yesterday on tastemaker site, Pilerats.
“Above a striking production laden with bubbly synth stabs and clicks, Sean and Theia exchange verses, creating a call-and-response-type track that highlights both their strengths - Sean's production and the smooth R&B twang to his vocal, and Theia's confident and tall-standing vocal stride.”
This is the third time SeanTurk and Theia have worked together - the first was when Sean remixed Theia’s 2017 Top 40 hit ‘Treat You’ from her debut EP; they teamed up again in 2018 on Theia’s song ‘Bad Idea’ with Sean on production credits.
Now back together again - and working long distance with Sean in New York and Theia dividing her time between Sydney and Auckland - the pair have pulled together a certified banger of a collab.
‘1Night’ is an upbeat electro track with edgy R&B melodies and a tropical, dancehall vibe, which switches seamlessly between half-time and double-time, to pounding four-to-the-floor beats.
The ‘boy-meets-girl’ duet is a playful tip of the hat to that nostalgic summer crush. It’s exciting and fun, but also riddled with uncertainty. It’s a story that’s cleverly played out through Sean’s carefree and lax vocal delivery matched by Theia’s sexy and strident retorts, culminating in an epic two-part bridge that brings the song to a throbbing crescendo.
