The Young Professionals (TYP) is an Israeli electro pop band composed up of producer Johnny Goldstein and singer/songwriter/producer Ivri Lider. The band mixes electronic sounds, guitars and acoustic percussion to create an amazingly catchy sound.
Directed by Guy Sagy, Be With You Tonight, from TYP’s debut album 9AM to 5PM, 5PM to Whenever, pays homage to Alain Resnais’ hypnotic, high fashion romance Last Year at Marienbad, and features the “fire on ice” collection by French designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac.
The single contains a sample from Joe Dassin’s Et si tu n’existais pas, taken from the famed francophone New York singer/songwriter’s 1975 album, Le costume blanc.
