UK-based artist Eagles & Butterflies has unveiled brand-new single ‘Retropolis’, out 27th September.
An infectious, dancefloor focused electro-synth jam, ‘Retropolis’ pairs robotic synths with catchy euro-disco energy. That its working title was Italo should tell you all you need to know. Suitable for big rooms, major moments, minor miracles and sophisticated car chase scenes alike.
The track will feature on his forthcoming EP, out 14th October on Gerd Janson‘s Running Back label, with part 2 EP set to drop in early 2023. There will be a launch party at Muting the Noise in Berlin on 13th October. Elsewhere, he has just released a Feel My Bicep mix, and is releasing remixes from Jennifer Cardini, Hiver and Chinaski on his label Art Imitating Life.
“‘Retropolis’ for me is the past meets the future,” Eagles & Butterflies explains. “I love influences and technology from the past and making music that sounds like it could be from for a time yet to arrive. Set for release on my favourite label, Running Back, I can’t wait for people to hear both part one and part two and take a trip to Retropolis.”
