Returning with the debut release on their brand new self-titled imprint for AWAL, Brighton collective Loyal reveal their 90’s style piano house track “Architect”. A record that will take you back to the raves of your past and the fantasy parties of your future, the band has brought back their gospel choir to join Bearcubs on vocals for a truly nostalgic yet epically modern take on those reach-for-the-laser moments. “Architect” marks the start of a new Chapter for Loyal, building on an incredibly successful start, with Radio 1 support from Phil Taggart, Mistajam and Pete Tong, as well as a pair of Maida Vale sessions.
While it’s easy to appreciate a release like this for its ambient qualities, there’s also a notably melodic and almost live aspect to the recording. “Architect” feels as if it’s either about to drop into something manic and heavy, or evolve and change completely into something brand new. What actually comes is a drop to something a little more secure, a little more spacious and rhythmically entrancing. It does feel more like a late-night 90’s dance floor moment by this point where piano and house fuse and melt around you in a hypnotic and strangely calming fashion. All in all, the journey of “Architect’ is both refreshingly creative and nostalgically enjoyable. Electronic music fans will likely appreciate the layers and moments as much as the overall experience that Loyal and Bearcubs team up to deliver.
