Late Nite Laundry Shows the Band's Love for 70s Funk with Psychedelic Soul Single "Free Time"

Late Nite Laundry released their first single since the lineup change with “Fantasy” last December, which shows a dreamier, more atmospheric approach to their music than their pre-pandemic music. Earmilk said the last single is “an inviting jazz meets pop vibe reminiscent of Crumb and Toronto's Jaunt.” The pandemic canceled their tours and shows — including opportunities to open for Slow Pulp, tour with Winona Forever, and play an official SXSW showcase — but now they've found their new sound all while building onto their home studios as well as their creative process. Late Nite Laundry is recovering from a lot, but the Chicago band is forging ahead with its psychedelic soul sound. The Chicago Tribune profiled the band earlier this year, not only focusing on their 2020 hardships but also their growth as a group. They noted the band's last single “is one of the stronger new releases from a local group [...] perfect for long evenings indoors,” continuing, "if upcoming releases are anything like 'Fantasy,' they should be successful." ”

Late Nite Laundry began in 2019 but found their footing well into 2020. They restructured as a four-piece last year after a founding member moved away from Chicago early into the pandemic. The band has become more fluid in their songwriting since restructuring, Guitarist Ari Lindo and bassist Emily Burlew have taken on most of the vocals while keyboardist Brenden Cabrera is the band's resident engineer and producer, while drummer Alex Santilli also contributes to the band's songwriting.
