Former Hot Chip drummer and blue-eyed electro-soul balladeer Rob Smoughton released his debut single "Nitemoves" in 2007. An ode to illicit chance encounters that sat somewhere between Steely Dan and Goldie.
His latest single "Drive Your Car" was a recent Single of the Week on Stuart Maconie and Mark Radcliffe's Radio 2 show and is a floor thumping nu-disco track, all shimmering slinky synths, handclaps and squelchy bass. For this track Grovesnor takes on the role of chauffeur to the stars, warning them of "laisez-faire sommeliers, and hotelliers with satin stares". It also has a power-grab chorus that just goes through the roof!
Drive Your Car is released on 14th April on Greco-Roman Records and the 12" includes a Hot Chip remix. It is also available to download from 7th April through iTunes and Beatport.
Catch him (and his full live band) at the Ocean Rooms on Friday 11th April.
