Trust us, you'll want to head down to the village hall later.

Following the release of their debut Last Chance To Dance EP and sexy saxy slow jam "What's Up," it's time for something new from London bffs EKKAH. As they warm-up for their second year running at Glastonbury, Rebecca Wilson and Rebekah Pennington of EKKAH (get it?) have begun been teasing out Space Between Us. In a genius move, the song was written and recorded out in LA with legendary producer Dâm Funk, and you can almost feel the warmth of the California sun as the duo invokes the pop power of early Madonna and the cosmic music mother that has clearly been guiding them through their careers so far.

London-born, LA-based photographer and director Millicent Hailes and photographer Olivia Richardson worked with EKKAH to create a music video to step-tap along to. It's glam; the glitter eyeshadow is on point and long, lingering shots of perfectly made-up lips and flickering fairy lights are set to heavenly funk and well-placed vocoder. A silver sequin dress sends glitter ball shimmers dancing across the keys, and the whole damn thing leaves us wishing that all gigs took place in this aesthetically pleasing village hall. What a dream.

EKKAH's Double A-side What's Up / Space Between Us is due for release July 22. The duo's debut album to follow early next year on Sony/RCA.
