Premiere: Niterunner's Long Road is a relentless funk anthem

The Australian brother-sister trio channel the likes of M83 on their charging new single.

There's something about the slick and laid-back funk-pop sound of artists such as M83 and Chromeo which is so appealing to such a large variety of people. Whether it's the funky, disco-infused productions or the slick songwriting that often accompanies the beat, artists like those listed have spawned one of electronic's most fruitful sub-genres and hopefully, will continue to do so as the sub-genre grows and grows at the hands of Kaytranada and others. Long Road, the new single from Brisbane/Byron brother-sister trio Niterunner, sports an Australian tinge to this intercontinental (but mostly French-led sound), using this funk sound as a relentless backbone that pulses underneath the single's glittering melodies – primarily dominated by Andrea's indie-tinged vocals which are warm and comforting against the punching production. Niterunner's Soundcloud account is littered with crafty productions and remixes - most recently a remix of the much-loved (and much-remixed) Stranger Things Theme, but there's something about Long Road which puts it in a league of its own for Niterunner, and has us incredibly intrigued to see what the threesome has in store for the year ahead.
