An immersive blend of indie and soul cascading into a smooth electro soul and beautiful pop hooks, Later. earn that period at the end of their name because there’s nowhere else needed to go after you hear this opus and epic track.

With clear nods to the songwriters of music’s past, ‘Cold Touch’ warms the ears via the heart and lends a feel with a hit to the feels by taking music itself to that next needed level.

About ‘Cold Touch’

Young French alt-indie quartet Later. return with a brand new release in the form of ‘Cold Touch’, lifted from the upcoming new album released later this year through cult Paris label Cookie Records and announce a series of shows across France this Spring.

Following on from the band’s acclaimed debut album, ‘Walking On the Line’, released in 2023, new single ‘Cold Touch’ is a succinct display of extraordinary musical artistry, the band channel subtle retro influences coupled with introspective, wry lyricism.

They say: “We can’t wait to headline our show at iconic Parisian venue La Cigale, which kick starts our 2024 tour. Our new track ‘Cold Touch’ mixes pop and French Touch influences.

The powerful chorus mirrors the will to break the ice and the distance that can separate you from your loved ones.”

The accompanying music video was shot on film at the legendary nightclub Les Bains in ‘Le Marais’ district of Paris. The band add: “The blue-toned images of the video illustrate the coldness felt when you desire yourself and the ice doesn’t break. With each chorus, the video montage follows the rhythm of the music as if to follow a heartbeat that races in the profusion of club lights. Feeling alone when surrounded, as paradoxical as loving someone without being able to touch them.”

About Later.

Some stories start in a rather unconventional way. When Charles, Paul, Noah and Theo met, they knew they had in common their passion for music. Reuniting every week, friendship and creation grew together punctuated by everlasting coffee-breaks and shares of dreams, ultimately forming the Later. band.

In-between their two home-made studios in the bustling district of Pigalle or a tranquil suburban house a couple of hours away from Paris, the band is full of contradictions and has a thirst to stay out of the conventional schemes of the industry. English-speaking but French, their songs find inspiration in a variety of styles and eras (pop, soul, french-touch, rock…) in order to craft an intimate, spontaneous yet richly-produced music.

In 2019, their story draws attention of French label Kitsuné which releases their first single ‘L.Y.E’. Soon after, they engage with the label Cookie Records and sign their first two EPs ‘On Time’ and ‘The Daydream’, played on multiple radios in France: Nova, FIP and France Inter. They are added to numerous editorial playlists on streaming platforms. The French news even compared them to Daft Punk in a special broadcast about the iconic duo. Only one year into the project, French artist and tastemaker Bon Entendeur features the rising group on their first compilation with the track ‘Get Up!’. Their star track ‘Highway 10’ even gets played and shared from space by astronaut Thomas Pesquet on his last mission.

Transposing their home studio to real live shows, their first concerts in Paris are sold out. Already teased with singles and music videos reaching up to MTV Mexico, or Netflix’s show Emily in Paris, their first full length project ‘Walking on the Line’ was released in March 2023. They are currently touring and working on their second LP.
