The scene was October, covid restrictions had set in and the northern hemisphere was on its way back into winter. A gentle gloom had started to permeate the days until Canadian songwriters HOFFEY appeared with their cheerful sound, radiating the warmth of their current home base in Hawaii and promising their listeners ‘GOOD THINGS ARE COMING’. Naturally, at the time the duo received praise from the likes of CelebMix, EDM Identity and Pop Music as the duo released a lyric video to accompany their anthemic single.
Flash forward to now, as the covid restrictions begin to lift and the music scene begins to raise its head once more, with live sets on the horizon and the promise of a return to normality in the air. The romantic duo have reappeared with their next single ‘Coffee’, bathed in future-bass tones and gentle adoration the two clearly share for each other. Released via Physical Presents, the single was produced by pluko (aka Sam Martinsen), a 20-year old innovative genre-bending producer who has earned over 100 million plays across streaming platforms.
Hoffey share their inspiration for the single: ‘Coffee’ is a story about two people who realize after meeting that there is an undeniable connection and feeling of familiarity. The idea of when you meet your “soulmate” it’s almost as if you already knew them somehow, there’s a gravitational pull towards them that changes everything. The lyrics in the song repeat “I could get used to you” meaning I want to constantly be around you, know you, your flaws, your dreams, your fears. We wanted to create a song that took you on a journey and left your imagination open to interpret it however you wanted.”
