Press Play: Robert Robert & LIA – ‘Speak’

Looking cool in quarantine are Robert Robert and LIA in their official Zoom video for the boppy, synth-laden single ‘Speak’. “I kind of see this as the track playing in the store where you shop for supplies before going out,” Robert Robert writes on the single. “I wanted to keep this radio mood but also include a rave vibe that you can find on every track of the album.” Lending her pristine vocals to the track is LIA, the trip-hop influenced singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer hailing from Maryland. After two EPs and a two-track project released on Nowadays Records in November 2019, Robert Robert will be back this summer with a new album: Hoodie Bleu Ultra (out July 3rd) with ‘Speak’ leading the way.

Made during quarantine in Quebec, the video for ‘Speak’ carries the raw energy of the song, this kind of raving spirit taking upon us before the sun goes down. Robert Robert recorded this zoom session with his good friend and great singer LIA and delivers us a raw testimony of palpable energy that ultimately increase our will to get back on the dancefloor.
