Following on from ‘I Know What You Did Last Night’, ‘Stalker’, and most recently ‘Swim’ with DVBBS, Sondr return alongside Samantha Harvey for the feel-good new single ‘Company’ on Ultra Music. Since their debut Gold-certified single ‘Surviving’, Sondr have smashed through 100 million streams, becoming in-demand remixers and working with Peg Parnevik, Lenny Kravitz, VIZE, and the red-hot Love Harder aka Will Simms, amongst others. In their newest collaboration, they link up with the hugely talented Samantha Harvey, an accomplished singer, songwriter, and top UK social media star, who brings real class to this uplifting, disco-tinged tune.
Sondr are truly on an impressive roll right now. After already notable solo careers, Yk Koi and Lorenzo Cosi joined artistic forces to great effect and have worked with a real who’s who of international talent from across the board. Their Ed Sheeran remix was voted by Billboard as one of the best remixes in 2018, with more following for the likes of Chainsmokers, Steve Aoki and Aurora.
Samantha Harvey brings something special to this track. She has amassed a global following of over 2 million subscribers by posting cover versions of popular songs on her YouTube channel. She’s clocked up more than 245 million views and after independently releasing her first original track, ‘Forgive Forget’, she raced into the charts while supporting acts such as Nick Jonas, Craig David and Rita Ora. In the years since, she has headlined her own UK tour, had support from numerous Spotify New Music Friday, and Apple New Music Daily, playlists, and enjoyed multiple plays on BBC Radio 1. Together, this pair mark another fantastic outing on Ultra Music, joining globally respected artists such as Calvin Harris, Kygo, deadmau5, Black Coffee, MK and many more who have released on this dance music heavyweight label.
Sondr revealed, “We’re pumped to get this feel good record out into the world! Following on from our last single “Swim” with DVBBS we continue to venture into the realms of disco house, married with our signature organic production, including guitars and live strings. It’s been fun working with Samantha on this one, we actually reached out to her many years ago to do a collab, so it’s awesome that we finally managed to do a song together.”
Samantha Harvey adds, “So excited for this new release with the amazing Sondr, I don’t usually sit and listen to my own music, but I can’t help popping this one on in the car, it really does put me in such a happy feel-good mood and I’m hoping during the tough time everyone is going through right now this will give them the feeling of hope for when things go back to normality. I’m looking forward to being able to tour again and be able to sing and dance my heart out to this one!”
With its bright, dazzling and high-class production, ‘Company’ is an immediately infectious and heart swelling tune. The crisp, airy vocals from Samantha soar to the heavens on lush chords and swinging claps and the big beats are perfect for summertime celebrations. Add in some big string subs and warm bass and you have a crossover tune that ticks all the right boxes, as is always the case with Sondr.
Sondr x Samantha Harvey ‘Company’ is the joyful slice of irresistible dance music that we all need right now.
