79.5 releases a music video for their “Our Hearts Didn’t Go That Way” single featuring Durand Jones

79.5 is a remarkable band based in New York City. Not too long ago, they released a wonderful music video for their “Our Hearts Didn’t Go That Way” single featuring Durand Jones via Razor-N-Tape. The Asia Meade Smith-directed video stars Kate Mattison, Durand Jones, and Izaak Mills playing saxophone.

“Comes a time in our lives, when undercovers, our bodies felt the same beat. It takes an ocean, it took an ocean of time to get to know you, babe. I heard a rumor, it took a rumor, changed my mind, and made me go insane. I loved you forever baby, but our hearts didn’t go that way.” – lyrics

‘Our Hearts Didn’t Go That Way’ contains a relatable narrative and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of Donna Summer, Grace Jones, and Midnight Magic. The reflective tune possesses thudding drums, booming bass, and saxophone-laden instrumentation flavored with R&B, disco-funk, and a whole lotta soul. Furthermore, “Our Hearts Didn’t Go That Way” will be featured on 79.5’s upcoming self-titled album, available on May 5th, 2023.

“Shoulda loved you just the same. Babe, I lost my way.”

79.5 was started in 2010 by singer-songwriter and composer, Kate Mattison. Named after an imaginary radio station, 79.5’s sound may be hard to categorize, sounding like ‘70s underground disco one minute, and sugary sweet girl pop the next. Sometimes an acid jazz freakout, oftentimes psychedelic and romantic, yet the impression left is always distinctively 79.5.

In 2016, 79.5 released the now classic 45, “Terrorize My Heart (Disco Dub),” a staple in DJ sets, getting spins from Gilles Peterson, Q-Tip, Just Blaze, and Natasha Diggs. In February 2021, Questlove added the Mattison-penned track to his 100 Essential Songs You Should Know playlist, which includes legendary musicians Sade, CHIC, Patrice Rushen, and Prince.

Early 2019 saw the addition of singer-songwriter and rapper, Lola Adanna (Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens) to the lineup, and became a bright new chapter for founding member Mattison and longtime 79.5 saxophonists, Izaak Mills. Their current lineup also includes Caito Sanchez (Charles Bradley) on drums and Andrew Raposo (Midnight Magic, Hess Is More) on bass.
