New York alt-pop band The Influencers are proud to announce the release of their latest single Slingshot. The track is a singer songwriter ballad with an intriguing twist, featuring 4 part harmonies, 80's style synth and spacey pre-chorus breaks, giving the track a feel good dance vibe whilst offering a Radiohead style alternative flavour. 

Slingshot was written collaboratively by Evan (vocals) and Steven (percussion). Here's what Evan had to say on the making of the song:

"Slingshot is our 5th single since restarting our music in 2018, and coincidentally our 5th love song in a row. While our other songs spoke about love from various points in a relationship, this one is about that very first crush. That feeling of your crush enveloping your mind and that feeling you get when you see them. Your world slows down just like a movie, you feel like you’re floating through space in a vacuum holding onto your breath while everything is suspended in the air like stars in the night sky - shimmering but forever fleeting. 

" - Evan

Slingshot is released through Tonotopic Records and is available everywhere from JANUARY 24th 2020 for you to buy and stream.
