Dragonette, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Cat Dealers, and Bruno Martini make a ‘Summer Thing’
Written by Rhythm 86 on June 3, 2021
Dragonette, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Cat Dealers, and Bruno Martini are lining up behind a sonic piece of summertime, aptly titled “Summer Thing.” Two constituents of the all-star “Summer Thing” production cast, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, attributed their initial interest in contributing to the track to its positivity in an official release. Written and produced during the pandemic with the hopes of uplifting streamers, “Summer Thing” does just that, making a sanguine splash on streaming platforms.
The two Armada Music fan favorites weren’t the only “Summer Thing” collaborators to talk the making of the single. Brazilian duo Cat Dealers discussed the serendipitous circumstances that corralled the creators, remarking,
“From the moment we got the demo and the vocals for ‘Summer Thing,’ we fell in love with it. This track has a funny story to it too! We—Cat Dealers, Bruno Martini and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano—are represented by the same manager, so he decided to send the demo separately to all of us knowing that we’d all love the track. Turns out we did love it, but no one was aware at that point that we all wanted to work on it too! When we found out, we decided to collaborate and work together on the track, so his plan actually worked out pretty well.
We’ve been huge fans of Martina from Dragonette ever since ‘Hello’ and of Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano too, way before Cat Dealers even existed. It’s also a pleasure to work with Bruno Martini again, with whom we produced ‘Gone Too Long.’ We’re super happy with the final result. It’s a very summery track that brings lot of positive vibes, which is something the world really needs right now.”
“Summer Thing” is out now via Armada Music.
