Comprised of singer/songwriter Leanne Macomber, best known for her work in Fight Bite and Neon indian and producer Joel Ford, best known for his work with Autre Ne Veut, Oneohtrix Point Never, and Ford and Lopatin, Young Ejecta is a Brooklyn-based electronic duo, which began in 2012 when Ford sifted through several years of Macomber’s bedroom recorded demos. Intrigued by Macomber’s wispy, ethereal vocals, Ford offered several, slickly produced, danceable instrumental pieces that seemed to worked perfectly. And the end result was their debut effort, Dominae which was released to critical praise for its unique sound and for its thematic concerns – unrequited love, failed attempts at adulthood and the death of her dearest and closest friend. 

“Into Your Heart” the first single from the band’s soon-to-be released mini-album The Planet continues the duo’s reputation for shimmering and ethereal dance pop as the song is comprised of layers of shimmering and skittering synths, propulsive and pulsing drums, hot, explosive flashes of cymbal paired with Macomber’s ethereal voice floating just above the mix. In some way, the song sonically bears an uncanny resemblance to Soft Metals and their impressive Lenses (which at times sounded as though it owed a debt to Giorgio Moroder), Lyrically, the song’s narrator dreamily coos to a lover, who’s either about to leave and/or is absent and the slick production work gives the song a plaintive urgency and a subtle sensuality at its core.
