Moon Boots (Pete Dougherty) has reconnected with longtime collaborator Nic Hanson on exciting new single ‘Take To Your Body’.
A bright, seductive house jam with echoes of the Neptunes and New Jack Swing", ’Take To Your Body’ is reminiscent of balearic styles in its warm chords and airy staccato synths. Playful and fun, the track is accompanied by Hanson's pitch-perfect delivery, singing flirtatious lyrics like "All We want is to feel / The kind of loving that's for real / So baby let whisper in your ear”.
The track follows recent singles ‘Hot Minute’ featuring Black Gatsby and ‘Come Back Around’ featuring Cherry Glazerr, both of which saw extensive support on KCRW, with the latter named ‘Coldest Record’ on BBC Radio 1 and supported by the likes of Triple J, and SiriusXM. All three tracks will feature on Moon Boots’ forthcoming third studio album ‘Ride Away’, out March 17th 2023, which is available for vinyl pre-order now.
Written and produced over a nearly two-year period beginning in early 2021, ‘Ride Away’ contains themes of love, companionship, and personal exploration. Hauling in a crate’s worth of musical influences, Moon Boots has imbued the album with his characteristic blend of soul, disco, and house music, whilst also introducing the sounds of synthpop, breakbeats, and Psychedelia.
A Brooklyn native, Dougherty became obsessed with electronic music during his teenage years. Following a childhood spent learning piano, he soon discovered synthesisers, hip-hop and the underground techno scene. Shortly after leaving Princeton University, he relocated to Chicago, where he DJ'd, worked on original music, and played in a touring synth-pop trio. Whilst performing and absorbing new sounds, he was also at work on original tracks, blending the influences of French house, jazz, minimalism, soul and other discoveries.
Originally from Philadelphia, Nic Hanson is a 27-year-old singer, songwriter, rapper and multi-instrumentalist now living in London. A hugely talented charismatic who has developed an international following on Instagram and TikTok by singing in dozens of languages, Hanson is no stranger to working with Moon Boots, having has previously collaborated on ‘Keep The Faith’ and ‘Clear’, tracks that have racked up over 18 million combined Spotify streams.
His third scintillating single release in quick succession, Moon Boots’ ‘Take To Your Body’ is certain to be a staple in his as his multiple upcoming DJ sets at iconic venues likes the Hollywood Palladium, Elsewhere NYC, and Printworks London, and his live album tour to be announced next year.
