LATER – Not Like Me (impacts 23/02 on Laterhosen Records)
LATER are Norwegian singer/songwriter Linn Carin Dirdal and London producer Drive Me Home. Not Like Me continues the duo’s signature buttery timeless pop in a song about the risks of changing to please someone and losing yourself - as Linn sings in the chorus: “I’m not like me when I’m with you.” It’s the sound of elegant melancholy, with punchy drums, lush synths and multilayered vocals evoking the sad and slightly sinister sound of a sinking love boat. The Glue EP follows the duo's single Before This, where they teamed up with London rapper CASisDEAD. The tune became an underground hit in the summer of 2016, and was playlisted on 1Xtra, Rinse FM and played on Radio 1 by Huw Stephens and Annie Mac. The track premiered on Noisey, who went on to vote it one of the best songs of 2016.

Biography
LATER - Glue EP out January 25th

LATER are Norwegian singer/songwriter Linn Carin Dirdal and London producer Drive Me Home. Their debut EP Glue is buttery timeless pop accompanied by self- made videos with such absurd imagery you’re not sure what’s just hit your retinas.
The two became good friends years before they started making music together so once they did, the working relationship was an easy game of London/Oslo ping pong, sending beats and vocals between the two cities. An early song of theirs, Before This was discovered by London rapper CASISDEAD who persuaded them to let him feature on the track and video. The tune became an underground hit in the summer of 2016, premiering on Noisey (who went on to vote it one of the best songs of 2016), featured on Fader, was playlisted on 1Xtra, Rinse FM, played on Radio 1 by Huw Stephens and Annie Mac and featured on many other blogs and stations. The Glue EP is a first step towards releasing a lot more material in 2018.

LATER make all their videos entirely by themselves, something that has obvious challenges as a two man operation, but gives them complete control. Unicorn is accompanied by a video featuring Linn attempting to numb the pain of a break-up by binge-ing drugs and hanging out with a very strange pet. If This Is The Other Side, another song filled with yearning and regret, sees a gilded Linn getting through a night lost in the city until she finally gets the call she’s been longing for. Picture Perfect, a cover version of Ciara’s 2006 hit ‘Promise’ has a video featuring very weird selfies and non-consensual interplanetary intercourse.

None of their songs sound alike, but they are all un-mistakenly carved out of the same wood. Chilled 80s pop soul sits next to trapped R’n’B, a jagged, analog rhythm works up to a smooth climax and shares space with a straight up pop banger. In LATER’s case, their many different influences give them the confidence to draw from a vast musical palette.
