UK talent Yazmin Lacey gave us the first listen of her upcoming debut LP Voice Notes when she dropped her single “Pieces” last fall. Since then, we’ve had our ear to the street waiting to hear more. She followed up with her song “Bad Company” and now she’s releasing one last single before the album’s official release with her latest track “Late Night People.”
“Late Night People” gives us yet another different facet of Yazmin’s artistry. Whereas “Pieces” offered a brokenhearted lament over piano and “Bad Company” gave us a jazzy neo-soul feel, her latest single has an experimental vibe that channels the fun energy of those who take the night in search of life’s meaning and a good time. Synthesizer leads the way, giving the song a slightly eerie sound that’s balanced by bright drums and Yazmin’s own carefree vocal.
The verses sum up some of the motivations of the crowd of late-night adventurers. It’s the chorus, however, that describes them best. “Dabblin’ escapists / Just to feel weightless / Don’t need no encouragement / Late night people,” Yazmin sings. “Blurry as we dream / These nights will set us free / Liberated beings / Late night people.”
“Late Night People” is a left-of-center jam that’s sure to fuel a late night or two for all the night owls out there doing their own thing. You can listen to the song via the stream below or when you peep the fun visualizer for the track as well. You’ll hear even more from Yazmin Lacey when Voice Notes arrives on March 3rd.
