New Track: Think We’re Fine – Sub Blue (ft Manga Saint Hilare)


NEW LEASE MUSIC regular and favourite SUB BLUE hooks up with his favourite MC, Manga Saint Hilare and brings something a little different to the table with brand new single ‘Think We’re Fine.

The promising soul newcomer exchanges his melancholic take on soulful R&B for a mid-tempo combo of hip-hop/R&B. SUB BLUE‘s vocal instrument injects a summery nineties vibe (think Usher), whereas Saint Hilare, vibrantly spits over the laid back bars.

Speaking of his latest release, SUB BLUE says: “Think We’re Fine’ is about how we live our lives carefree; spending money, doing whatever it is we want – without worrying about consequence or seeming not to. This is often glorified publicly making it so easy to bask in the glory of it. But behind all that, we are all fighting our own battles that not everyone knows about.

For the artwork, I used an image of Mac Miller, who I felt perfectly personified the emotion of the record to me. I am a big fan of his music but I think that tragedy, like many others, reflects the duality of celebrated recklessness and internal pain vs external perceptions.” 

‘Think We’re Fine’ is the lead single from his forthcoming project, ‘Wilfully Blind’.

New Music Video: Hype Like Supreme – Sub Blue

Electronic soul/ R&B newcomer SUB BLUE released a visual to accompany new single ‘Hype Like Supreme’.

Speaking of the new production he says: “The aim here was to simply show the blurred lines between hype and true love. It’s another flip on the chorus lyrics. This culture is real – its pretty much the same level of infatuation and emotion that you would usually equate to love or a mad crush”

‘Hype Like Supreme’ is the first track taken from his new EP, out in 2018. It was produced by British soul artist and producer XamVolo.

SUB BLUE grew up in the suburbs of Merseyside in the North of England. He was named the first ever ‘One to watch’ by Liverpool International Music Festival’s Academy, he was just leaving school at the time. Since then he’s been honing his sound with local talent including XamVolo, Teesoulful and SPXKEN and putting the final touches to his debut EP.

It was produced by British soul artist and producer  XAMVOLO.

His  EP, ‘Suburban View, is produced by the likes of Sir Dylan (Weeknd, Solange, Logic), A.V (Frank Ocean) and XamVolo,  is a glimpse at the life of teens trying to find their place in the world, while navigating peer and social pressure and trying to define their own voice. For now, SUB BLUE gives a taste of that style and direction, with ‘Hype Like Supreme’, an ode to both a teenage crush described using the abnormal craze evoked by drops of coveted items like Supreme.
