Premiere: Driver (single) – Gold Complex

NEW LEASE MUSIC is very proud to present Canadian genre bending collective GOLD COMPLEX‘s single titled ‘Driver’, out today on all streaming/download sites.

Since their last appearance on the blog with sultry single ‘Tread On Me’ back in 2016, the ten-piece band from Toronto has been deep in the trenches of the studio for almost three years, creating their piece de resistance. The latest offering features a three-piece horn section with rich soulful harmonies in an exploration of funk, pop and rock. It’s a song about passion, romantic attraction and emotional co-dependency, reminiscent of Red Hot Chili Peppers but with a modern edge and a classic twist.

‘Driver’ is the second release from their highly anticipated debut album, ‘New Soul’ and follows their first single from the album, ‘Fight About Nothing’, a classic soul jam with a compelling music video directed by the band’s lead singer, Will Bowes. Check it out here.

Keep your ears peeled for their next single ‘Homegirl’, dropping on the 1st February and album ‘New Soul’, coming out on 22nd February…but for now, wrap your ears around this delight.

Remember, you heard it first on NEW LEASE MUSIC!
