‘Lately‘ begins with a smooth and jazzy rhodes, before being introduced to the honey cut vocals of Daphne. Blended with hip-hop drums, synthesizers and a groovy bass it makes for an interesting collaboration.
Fernando Arroyo, aka AR Ferdinand, starts us with this particular single for his upcoming debut LP, “Wild Fiction”. Due in March, we expect it to be filled with fresh and innovative song.
“I started to work on the idea for Lately after a vacation on my favorite place on earth, Lake Coatepeque. Having spent so much time there, I feel like I’m in paradise surrounded by my friends everytime.” – AR Ferdinand
Fernando sent the song idea to Daphne on a late Sunday night, she immediately felt a connection to the song and they started working together. After a few weeks the song took a more complex form, aptly it took the name “Lately”
“’Lately” is one of the many tastes that the album has to offer, I think it’s a perfect representation of what I’ve been working on for the past 3 years. – AR Ferdinand
