Lou Hayter is full of swagger on the loved-up retro-pop single “My Baby Just Cares For Me”

Lou Hayter is a London-based singer, songwriter and producer who is perhaps best known for her work in New Young Pony Club. Now stepping out under her own name, Hayter is gearing up to release a debut album early next year and today she has delivered a tantalising taste of what’s to come with the single “My Baby Just Cares For Me”.

Making use of crystalline synths that interlock to create a retro-futuristic stage, Hayter saunters into “My Baby Just Cares For Me” with all the confidence and verve of someone who is on top of the world. While the sounds and textures all around continue to dazzle, a deeply infectious groove is set, and Hayter’s tone locks into it with sultry excellence as she tosses off lines like “you speak in English but your kiss is French.” You don’t stop to think about it because “My Baby Just Cares For Me” just continues to glide and bounce with a slowed-down-disco attitude, drawing you into a sexy slow dance with the singer that you won’t want to pull away from.
