Cinema teams up with vocalist Chris Leech for ‘Floating’

Peter Fleming returns as Cinema.


Back in January we caught up with Cinema and Phare before their headline show in The Bernard Shaw for our Conversations Podcast.

We discussed how he’s been since his debut album and a new label driven by some of the finest producers and DJs in Newbridge.

He’s now recruited vocalist Chris Leech for a six-minute, typically synth-driven track.

Talking about the release and the collaboration with Leech, Peter says: “The song was written as an instrumental at the end of 2016, and was very much a musical summary of the year that had just passed – intensely nostalgic. It was obvious to me straight away that this would be the first track that I would write lyrics for.

“These were heavily image based, with the core theme being the concept of connecting to someone, something or some place so effortlessly that it’s like floating. Once written, it was equally obvious that Chris was to be the vocalist to sing them, having met a month or two previous while playing the same gig in Dublin.”

The track was also mastered by Choice Music Prize nominee Bantum. Listen below.
