Up-And-Coming Electronic/Alt-Pop Duo Ar/Co Return with New Single “CHERRY LIPS” Out Today, February 2 on Helix Records

Building off their successful 2023 run, electronic/alt-pop duo AR/CO, who is Mali-Koa and Leo Stannard, share their new single “Cherry Lips” out today, February 2 on Helix Records.

From its engaging early lyric “We’ll lose our money out in Vegas,” “Cherry Lips” is an anthem for free-spirited fun with the duo’s sun-kissed shared vocals exulting all-night partying, falling in love and life-affirming adventures. The maximalist sound sends that liberated vibe into the stratosphere: its celebratory chorus is supported by an instantly seductive melody, blissfully bouncy beats and classic piano house keys. 

“‘Cherry Lips’ is youthful and a hell of a good time, like the whole AR/CO theme,” says AR/CO. It’s just another chapter in our bonkers but fun world. We think everyone can connect with its free-spiritedness like we do.”

In the space of the 18 months since they released their debut track, AR/CO–who currently can be heard in their Kx5 (deadmau5 & Kaskade) collaboration “Bright Lights” from their GRAMMY-nominated album Kx5 (“Best Dance/Electronic Album”)–have beckoned a growing fanbase into their world.

It’s an escapist, otherworldly experience that encourages everyone to come together as a community and forget about their worries to a soundtrack of utterly uplifting future pop and disco dynamics, all with a touch of alternative psychedelia for good measure.

The journey has seen the duo make a continuing impact, twice landing “Hottest Record” for their collabs amidst broader support for their own tracks at Radio 1, completing a UK / European arena tour with 5 Seconds to Summer, playing a major outdoor London show with Kygo, and joining Sub Focus on-stage at Radio 1’s Big Weekend to perform “Vibration” from his critically acclaimed album Evolve.

While AR/CO have only released a handful of solo tracks – including “Night Feels” and “Call Me By Name” – they’ve already generated a strong following with 2.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify alone.

Their combination of inspiring positivity, sheer energy and instant earworm hooks has made them sought-after collaborators, with features and collaborations with an A-Z of major names – including Don Diablo, The Stickmen Project, Sub Focus, 220 KID, Tiesto, Kx5, Hayden James, Franky Wah, Will Clarke and Jaded – constantly putting them in the spotlight.

ABOUT AR/CO

Exciting newcomers in the electro scene, the spirit of AR/CO gravitates around fun and freedom – a true celebration of life and global community! In a world reimagined, AR/CO welcomes you to set your worries aside, take a leap and step into the new age, trailblazing with their infectious dance hits!

AR/CO duo Mali-Koa and Leo Stannard started the project as their own personal escape from the claustrophobia of the pandemic era. The songs they wrote felt so life-affirming that they felt compelled to take them to a world that needed a similar release from the realities of day-to-day life.

While they were casual friends, they had never really performed or traveled together so it took a leap of faith to put their full focus on AR/CO. But those songs meant everything to them, so they felt compelled to push forward, and their dedication was rewarded with a big reaction from fans, fellow artists and tastemakers alike.
