Vibrant and cheerful, ‘You Got Together’ is the perfect bright summer anthem to provide a shot of endorphins to the system. The irresistibly happy tune is lush with vibrant basslines and gentle, uncomplicated lyrics. It doesn’t matter what you’re celebrating – your friends, the weekend or even just a really good cup of coffee, Jaffna’s latest tune should be on your playlist.
Speaking of the ‘You Got Together’, Jaffna tell us: “We combined the influences of UK garage and French touch to create a song that is rich melodically with a driving rhythmic undertone. This is also the first time we have included our own vocals in a track!”
