Ceylon Ceylon Share New Single ‘Why Don’t They Love You’ | Music News
Teaming up with the hugely talented London vocalist Graziella, newcomer synth-pop production duo Ceylon Ceylon have delivered an electrifying new single titled “Why Don’t They Love You“, which sees them explore a more harder edge sound than previous singles.
Their music is described as a telescope gazing upon the magical world of vintage soul, and “Why Don’t They Love You” expands on this by boasting a healthy amount vintage synth sounds and a killer bass line. Although known previously for their more chilled output, this time round they flirt with hop hop and funk with Graziella delivering a vocal performance which is full of soul and swag, showcasing the incredible flow as an emcee she is famed for.
You may recognise Graziella as she rose to fame after X Factor and went on to work with Foreign Beggars, featuring heavily on three of their albums and touring internationally with the highly regarded hip hop collective. She also opened with them for Amy Winehouse and performed with them at Glastonbury.
Speaking about how the track came about and comparing it to previous single “Ghost”, Ceylon Ceylon say, “the tracks are written from two different perspectives; ‘Why Don’t They Love You’ questions how fulfilling it is to love our digital selves more than our analog selves, while ‘Ghost’ is a reflection on the emptiness we feel when comparing ourselves to the stream of flawlessness on social media“.
The transatlantic duo, James from New York and Josh from London, met whilst running Club nights around Shepherds Bush, London. After bonding over a love of soul, funk, house and electronica, they began to hone their own electro-pop sound. Their debut EP Colombo garnered plenty of early support from influential blogs like The Revue and Megatunes as well as with high profile YouTube channel Electro Pose.
