We’ll Be Fine is the new single from New Zealand based duo Clicks – house producer Dick Johnson (Magik J) and vocalist Anna Coddington.
Originally from the UK, Johnson started out as a resident DJ at Manchester’s legendary Hacienda nightclub before producing and releasing music in his own right. Teaming up with Coddington – whose own sound has a more dream-folk feel – the two have created a track that fuses the hazy hedonism of Madchester with quiet melodies and chilled beats.
Kicking in with vocals, a mellow bass line and soft but insistent rhythms, the song sets the listener up for a real musical journey, the slightly retro, garage bass and addictive loops providing a quietly insistent bedrock for Johnson and Coddington to swap vocals duties and duet sweet nothings.
It’s a sound that may have been more at home at Paradise Factory than the Hacienda, but that Manchester style is there, that’s for sure.
