Today’s Daily Feature is “Lover On the Run” by Australian Indie Pop band Playtime featuring vocalist Corban Chapple. A tune that takes inspiration from 80s boogie and post-disco from artists like Kashif, Change, and 80’s Aretha Franklin. The tune features slick vocal lines over funky synth riffs with crystalized synths sprinkled throughout. I am a huge 80s fan due to the heavy synth instrumentation like what was featured in “Lover On The Run”. Yet, this tune by Playtime features some groovy, funky melodies that will have people dance to! If you are a big fan of Bruno Mars’s “Finesse”, this is a song you have to listen to!

About the Artist: Playtime
Playtime began as an escape from the tedium of Australian lockdowns, old friends trading beats and 80’s production secrets over Zoom. Swept up in the naïve glee of the early 80’s musical landscape, this grew into a full blown cross-country collaboration, racing to ping another track across the Nullarbor to be discussed and improved upon. Eventually the stars aligned and relaxed restrictions allowed for a minor miracle to occur, a month all together, secluded in the small West Australian town of Toodyay, writing and recording the band’s first release. “Nobody Said It Would Be Easy (But It Was)”.
