Arctic Lake explores the delicate balance between love and work on the tender, uplifting new single ‘Are You Okay?’ released via Astralwerks.
Emma Foster’s expressive vocals and Paul Holliman’s bright, buoyant production combine to deliver a reassuring message about restoring personal connections that have gotten frayed by outside demands. The London-based duo collaborated on the track with Donny Bravo.
“We wrote ‘Are You Okay?’ after our first trip to the U.S., where we had a whirlwind of sessions. I realized I had been so caught up in everything that I had completely checked out from the one person who meant the most to me,” says Arctic Lake’s Emma Foster. “Today, we have all this technology connecting us and separating, all at once. Communicating should be easier than ever but when you’re busy, connection is sometimes the first thing to close down.”
