La Dante is the musical creation of Philadelphia based artist Maxwell Perla. Pairing desert infused singer-songwriter soul with a dusting of silky 1980s synthesizers, LaDante is pioneering a sound of his own.
Perla released his debut single “Mexico Sunrise” in 2018, establishing a signature sound described by Post to Wire as having a “smooth soul streak with a country sway and sun kissed vibe.”
Two new singles, “Addicted to U” and “The Only Ones”, will be released on La Dante’s own record label and production company Eraserhood Sound. The songs embody wha tLa Dante and EHS have dubbed Synth & Soul, a sound founded on funky rhythms, lush synthesizers, and evocative songwriting. After spending the past decade manning the drums for various funk and dance bands throughout Philadelphia and NewYork City, Perla is finally laying backbeats to fully realize his own moonlit open highway vision.
“Addicted to U” is La Dante’s debut single on Eraserhood Sound. Featuring pumping rhythms, melancholic strings, and a spare vocal delivery, “Addicted to U”describes how hard it can be to make it through the day when you become deprived of what your mind and body desire most. Says Perla, “People lose the ability to think rationally and every day becomes a struggle when you are addicted to something, whether it be a toxic relationship or a chemical substance. This song tells the story of trying to cope with that struggle morning noon and night.”
