Enigmatic Irish dance duo Topline share their second single 'Y2K'
On the heels of their irresistible debut single 'Blue Velvet', rising disco outfit Topline have released their latest track 'Y2K'.
Citing influences such as Chris Rainbow, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Ennio Morricone, John Lennon and Ali Tamposi, 'Y2K' is chock full of Daft Punk essence, funky melodies, '70s harmonies and dancefloor fun.
"The song was written originally as an upbeat disco song but as we began recording vocals we started to lean into themes of nostalgia and yesteryear," the duo told Hot Press.
"This was due to the sense of longing the song evoked in us, when we listened to the harmonic guitars and wandering pads, it felt like an anachronism, a time-slip when we were more focused on doing things based in the present. We came up with the title of Y2K to package all of these themes together, something that's future-focused but ultimately passed."
An enigmatic pair of brothers who keep a low profile on social media, Topline's swirling synths and effortless pop nostalgia combine to create the perfect summer disco soundtrack. Their debut single 'Blue Velvet' takes inspiration from French dance music such as Daft Punk, along with other disco legends such as CHIC and Sister Sledge.
