Throwback sounds has been making a comeback in the last few years. Artists like Bruno Mars, Ravyn Lenae, and more are opting to revive old-school vibes with a contemporary twist.
Emerging artist Erva Carter‘s latest single, “Night N’ Day,” falls in step with that current retro trend. The Houston-to-L.A. singer/songwriter has performed at numerous venues throughout Texas and her debut EP, Transformer, is expected to drop later this year. “Night N’ Day” is the project’s second single, following its electronica-esque lead track, “Euphoria,” which was released last year.
Erva likes to call herself an “alien girl” and that aesthetic comes alive on “Night N’ Day,” a high-energy record that fuses disco, EDM, and R&B. Producer 8mos incorporates shimmering synths, keys that drive the tempo, and even rock guitars in the breaks between the verses, ensuring a dance-ready feel. Carter’s voice moonwalks over the beat, sounding otherworldly as she sings about making a connection with someone out of the ordinary and not wanting to miss on it.
“Come back to me, baby / I need you with me,” Erva pleads on the track.
Listen to the single down below. “Night N’ Day is available now on iTunes; and those in Austin, TX for next week’s SXSW music festival just might get to catch her performing it live.
