Electronic music gets a sophisticated, swooning makeover with “Private Sunshine”, a heady sigh of Gallic tinged pop wreathed with melancholia and wistfulness, and a beautiful new piece of music from Lou Hayter’s new LP to see you through the winter.

Hayter mines an irrepressible vein of music all her own, creating a euphoric electronic soul track, written, produced and performed entirely by Lou herself. 

“Private Sunshine” shows another side to the London native, proving the plushly upholstered flipside to the propulsive retro-futurist strut of debut single “My Baby Just Cares For Me”’, which is already winning fans as diverse as Nick Grimshaw, Lauren Laverne,  Jo Whiley, Shaun Keveney and John Kennedy with its gloriously off-kilter 80’s funk.

It has been a long time coming for Hayter, who first made her mark professionally as keyboardist for the Mercury nominated New Young Pony Club, before going on to form the New Sins with Nick Phillips and Tomorrow’s World with Air’s JB Dunckel, but the wait has most definitely been worth it.
