The Aston Shuffle are finally back with the first in a long line of flaming hot singles to roll out from their forthcoming sophomore album. After signing with EMI Music Australia in late 2013, the boys started the year with the anthemic Can’t Stop Now, fast becoming #1 most played on triple j. Meanwhile their collaboration with Tommy Trash, Sunrise (Won’t Get Lost), held the #1 slot on Beatport for three weeks, generated over one million views on YouTube, and featured in every performance of Swedish House Mafia’s worldwide farewell tour. Later securing a Record of the Day feature for Can’t Stop Now and clocking up 100,000 YouTube views on the teaser, the buzz saw the band sign to Polydor in the UK and Universal Republic in the US, with their resulting push clocking up over half a million views and 3 plays on Radio 1 so far. Now, presenting Comfortable, a jam about finding familiarity in the arms of a stranger – a perfect dance floor sentiment if ever there was one and a fitting introduction to their first album in over 2 years. Co-written with long-time collaborator and APRA Breakthrough Writer of the Year & ARIA Producer of the Year, Styalz Fuego, the single fuses their signature blend of catch-cry emotive vocals and heart-starting techno. Comfortable was recorded in London earlier this year with soul up-comer, Will Heard (Klangkarussell Sonnentanz), and comes equipped with forthcoming remixes from Swedish electro house maestro John Dahlbäck, tech house homie Riton, and Hype Machine-conquering tropical bass upstart LDRU. The video will be directed by Prad Senenayake (Something For Kate, 360, Evermore), telling a vivid and unnerving tale of attraction gone awry in the streets of Los Angeles (think American Beauty meets Falling Down). As they put the finishing touches to their forthcoming album, The Aston Shuffle will take the single to the road with a string of national DJ performances heading into what should be a scorching summer.
