They are also accompanied by Eva Walker of The black tones on bass and Attic Hopper play the drums. The studio layout also includes a giant projection screen in the background, which features original footage of LaVette singing his track. “Let Me Down Easy”that the boys sampled for ‘The Last Farewell’.
After racking up just under 175,000 views on YouTube in just four days since its premiere, we can only assume the views will continue to rise.
“This song was born out of the idea of ââtrying to bring those enduring and defining pieces of music like the 1965 release of Bettye LaVette’s ‘Let Me Down Easy’ into a modern, contemporary electronic setting. The idea of ââbringing together two worlds, which at first glance seem distant, has always drawn us in. It was an absolute honor to be able to work with Bettye’s voice throughout the writing of the track. She is able to convey emotions with her vocal work like no other other. To date, this is one of the most rewarding songs we’ve had the chance to work on as artists. We hope everyone who listens enjoys the track as much as we did to do it.
