self-titled debut EP along with their follow-up single, "Watch What You Say" Melbourne-based duo Au Dré, comprised of vocalist/trumpeter Audrey Powne (The Do Yo Thangs) and producer/keyboardist James Bowers (Sex on Toast, The Vaudeville Smash), now return with their last offering called "Lines", a song about the risk involved in taking a friendship to the next level. The soulful and energetic female lead vocals are matched by the bold and exciting production which throws back to 80s boogie and funk whilst capturing the swagger of contemporary R&B and hip hop from the likes of Anderson Paak and Kaytranada. "Lines" also serves as the first single taken from Au Dré's forthcoming sophomore EP to be released later this year.
Speaking on the inspiration behind the track, Audrey says:
"I think everyone has one of those friendships which foundation is flirting. I found myself in that moment at a party, after a few drinks where I could sense a friendship might be about to turn into a more romantic encounter... which was simultaneously exciting and terrifying."
Listen to "Lines" below.
"Lines" is available now on Bandcamp.
