In the new song from Late July, which is the orchestral bedroom pop name of singer-songwriter Nicole Simone, we notice references to the eighties in the form of synthesisers. Her bi-coastal sound between Canada and Los Angeles is still around, now in the form of a new release, Sober, which she wrote while watching an ex publicly announce that he was quitting drinking. “A week later he very publicly failed and I was so disappointed,” she says of a track laden with meaning.


“I think anyone who has been impacted by someone with a substance abuse problem feels the anxiety, hoping the person is going to pull through addiction – and when they don't – you somehow feel like you've completely lost the person,” adds the artist, author of singles with tens of thousands of streams such as Heart-Shaped Box, Name or Side Swept. Immersing herself in an experience that many people have suffered, in which optimism is opposed to disappointment or sadness, the singer continues to connect with her audience through her characteristic sound.

The song was produced by Jessica Taylor and they used a lot of eighties synths, and it's like a beachy eighties prayer. “Having a lot of sober people in my life has given me a respect for what they go through and knowing all you can do is hope for the best but prepare for the worst,” says Late July of her new release, in which she demonstrates that music serves as a link between all people regardless of their origin and way of thinking.
