Single Premiere: "One By One" by Ian Late

Hey guys!

Do you know that feeling of pure excitement when you hear a brilliant new song?
You know, when you can't believe you've just stumbled upon a track which is so good that you can't help but have it on repeat?

Well, we're pretty lucky to experience that on a regular basis.
But what's cool is that we get to share those songs and therefore the feeling with you.

Today we actually get to share it with you before anyone else gets to share it -
isn't that mega cool?

On this fine Friday we get to premiere Ian Late's single "One By One" and we're all in for a treat.

- Single Premiere -
"One By One" by Ian Late

Ian Late is a musician based in Berlin, Germany.

His sound marches on the fine line between Pop and Indie-Folk and creates beautiful and vivid atmospheres.
His lyrics deal with society's problems and tell personal stories, always aiming to make you feel and think.

Ian's debut EP "II" was released in 2014 and has allowed the singer/songwriter to build a loyal fanbase, as well as tour Germany, Austria and Switzerland and play lots of festivals on top of that.
But he's also been able to travel further than that and play shows in Nashville, New York City, Shanghai and Taipei.

The release of his debut album "Choices" is right around the corner - on May 4th the record will meet the world and we can't wait to hear it.

After already winning us over with his first single "All That I Am", about which Ian told us a lot more in our "Behind The Song" feature, we are now excited to premiere follow up "One By One".

"One By One"
describes the chaos we often find or feel in big cities and the restlessness and helplessness that comes along with it.

It's fresh, it's upbeat and it most likely will make you forget about your surroundings and get you on your feet.
The song has something so addictive to it and perfectly fits into the releases of colourful Spring releases.
With Ian's warm vocals, it's no surprise that the song is a joy to listen to, as the vocals carefully guide you through the track. 
The instrumentation is uplifiting and controlling, but in a charming and subtle manner - nothing screams in your face, yet nothing hides behind a facade.
Light guitar riffs make the song so addictive, while the drum beat makes sure you're not letting your feelings get you down - and let's be real - that's something we all need.

We think this track belongs on your playlist, so join our dance party and let's keep on moving.
