Sterlatone is the songwriting project of writer-producer Ivo Witteveen and writer-singer Dylan Alling. On their latest release Nowhere To Point, Sterlatone venture beyond faux-nostalgia as they incorporate contemporary elements ranging from alt-pop to vaporwave. Propelled by the mid-’70s high production value sound nowadays known as yacht rock, the first two singles Right Before Dawn and The Crown are a natural progression from their earlier fusion of sixties and nineties Britpop work, yet maintain a similarly meticulous approach to soundcraft and recognizable timeless pop-sound.
Writer-producer Ivo Witteveen enlisted none other than legendary drummer Frank Tontoh (known for his work with George Michael and Amy Winehouse, amongst others) and sought-after bass player Mark Haanstra to shape a groove-based sonic canvas, aided by returning musicians Bastiaan Mulder (guitar) and Jeroen de Rijk (percussion). Completed by co-writer Dylan Alling’s earnest vocals, the resulting music evokes laid-back mid-’70s radio while delivering 21st century punches.
