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.

Upcoming Release: Look Back In Laugher – Hugh

hughLondon-based quartet, HUGH continue their beguiling journey  with the release of their latest single, Look Back In Laughter. The three-minute smoothie is laced with a positive message, veiled by the contrasting melancholy production. Sewn together by slow-burning synths, crackling percussion and a glimmering, transient guitar to cut through the mix, the alluring song sits in the amorphous zone between trip-hop, R&B and synth-pop.

Consisting of Joshua Idehen (vocals), Izzy Brooks(vocals), Andy Highmore (production/keys) and Tino Kolarides(Guitars) Look Back In Laughter sees Joshua take more of a leading role with the vocals, where we see his background in spoken word come to the forefront of the track. His warm baritone vocal is full of subtle wordplay and charming London colloquialisms which, when paired with the contrasting piercing pop tone from Izzy, adds another dimension to their genre fusing sound, Look Back In Laughter is a soothing reminder to not dwell on the negatives of life as one day we’re just “gonna look back and laugh” – a positive message which has the power to resonate with us all.

Musically melding sounds from a myriad of influences and cultures, HUGH continue to transcend genre and create captivating music which has earned them praises from the likes of Huw Stephens, Stereogum, Pigeons And Planes and The Guardian.

HUGH are fast becoming one of the stand-out artists in a musical landscape where the blurred lines between genres are becoming increasingly prevalent.This is evident in the live environment as well as on record, and in order to support the latest release they will be playing a special one-off showcase at Elektrowerkz in London on 12th October.
