London/Manchester electronic/synth duo Oh Baby (Rick Hornby and Jen Devereux) have unveiled their new single "I Need Somebody To Love Tonight".
The song is taken from their forthcoming debut album 'Hey Genius', which will be available on July 23 through Burning Witches Records.
Speaking about the track, the band said “I Need Somebody To Love Tonight is a cover of an obscure track by Patrick Cowley who was a composer and electronic musician/producer in 70’s San Francisco and who’s music formed part of the New York underground post-disco scene of the early 80’s. When we discovered his early instrumentals and demos had been re-released we devoured all that homemade analog charm. Finding out that the original track was part of music commissioned for gay porn films gave the sound even more beautiful late-night sleaze.”
