PRAISE FOR PREVIOUS SINGLE ‘LIVING IN COLOUR’
“A masterclass in narration, a breathtaking single from someone who wants to make a difference.”
– Clash Magazine (UK)
“Expertly pairing a laidback melody with some hard-hitting lyrics, Antoine this is your best yet. Sampling Meyne in here works so well without disrupting your flow and packs a major emotional punch, and those last bars at the end? Really powerful.” – 4.5/5 stars
– Pip Rasmussen – triple j (AUS)
“Poetic and powerful gear from Antoine!” – 4/5 stars
– Declan Byrne – triple j (AUS)
Following on from his critically praised single ‘Living In Colour’, Melbourne-based R&B artist Antoine has just returned with his alluring new single ‘New Bae Sh*t’ – produced and mixed by long-time collaborator ServidSounds.
Opening with sharp hi-hats, delicate synths stabs and Antoine’s effortlessly smooth delivery, ‘New Bae Sh*t’ is an elegant slice of polished R&B. Reverberating bass subs float in and out as the deftly mixed track leaves space for each element to develop eloquently.
Antoine talks about the process behind ‘New Bae Sh*t’:
“We only whipped this up about a month ago. The fastest songs we create are always the ones we love the most, because it means it’s just an effortless and instant vibe, which is exactly what happened with ‘New Bae Sh*t’. After hearing the beat from ServidSounds, I had something written within an hour and we laid it out that week. We had to get this one out for summer.”
Previous singles have been widely embraced by Spotify, Apple Music, triple j, triple j Unearthed and Australian community radio. They’ve also seen support from online blogs Clash Magazine (UK), Pilerats, AUD’$, Cool Accidents, Acid Stag, Mixdown Magazine, The Local Frequency, The Soundcheck and AAA Backstage.
Antoine comes from a family of musicians, who all originate from Mauritius, East Africa and Italy. His Dad is a multi-instrumentalist who still plays shows to this day, and his mother was also a back-up R&B vocalist in the ’80s. Both parents have been huge influences, making it difficult for him to have passion elsewhere.
In the coming weeks, Antoine will reveal an accompanying music video for ‘New Bae Sh*t’.
