Song of the Day: Tread On Me – Gold Complex (Nic Armour)


NEW LEASE MUSIC’s dish of the day is the sexy slow jam number, Tread On Me from Toronto-based classic soul/R&B/pop act GOLD COMPLEX. The single is taken from the band’s deluxe version of their self-titled debut EP.

Described by CBC’s Errol Nazareth as ‘smooth, catchy and sexy’, the dynamic octet has built a strong fanbase in Canada, headlining renowned venues and released their debut self-titled EP  in April last year. Their first two singles Tread On Me and Backbone received regular rotation on radio nationwide and were featured on the Nickelodeon television series, Open Heart, available on Netflix.

Following the national success of their debut EP, GOLD COMPLEX has brought their powerful sound to bigger audiences around the globe by releasing a Deluxe Edition with a psychedelic deep house remix of the R&B hit Tread On Me.This Soundcloud exclusive re-issue (available for free download) is a showcase of the band’s musical diversity and technical prowess, taking the listener on a journey from groovy dance tracks to soulful slow jams.

The band is currently in the studio recording their debut full length album New Soul, set for release in April 2017…be sure to look out for that…but for now, check out their smooth effort, Tread On Me.

New Music Video: Nowhere Road – Kings Of Lowertown

The maestro of low down dirty blues Mike MacKey, otherwise known as KINGS OF LOWERTOWN, released a black and white visual to the latest single Nowhere Road, from his upcoming EP of the same name.

The three-and-a-half minute production features model, actor and Algonquin dancer Josée Bourgeois and was mostly filmed at Ottawa Valley, where the emerging bluesy rocker call his home.

Produced by veteran musician Jordon Zadorozny, Nowhere Road sports a crispy light bluegrass feel, bearing slight influence of Tom Waits.

New Music Video: Royal Blood – Sound Glyphics

It’s almost two years since rock extreme experimentalists SOUND GLYPHICS graced NEW LEASE MUSIC with their 2013 EP, A Cacophony of Toots, Hoots, Cackles and Wails. Now the Canadian four-piece band are back with (I have to say) an improved and more refined effort, Royal Blood released late last month.

Their accompanied visual features a confused stranger mysteriously awakens in an abandoned house only to find that he is being led by the spirits that control everything that happens within. It’s one compelling video, why don’t you check it out!

Royal Blood is available to download via their website.
