THIS IS A FREE IN-STORE EVENT IN THE BAR UPSTAIRS AT ROUGH TRADE NOTTINGHAM. FREE ENTRY. 7PM DOORS / DJ'S // 9PM ONSTAGE.
JOIN HARLEIGHBLU AND FRIENDS IN THE BAR AT ROUGH TRADE FOR AN EXCLUSIVE LIVE PERFORMANCE OF NEW TRACKS FROM HER 'FUTURESPECTIVE' ALBUM.
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 1ST AT 7PM.
'Harleighblu's 'Futurespective' album charts the exciting development and artistic exploration of a gifted young singer and songwriter, bringing an eagerly awaited physical release for tracks from her acclaimed "Futurespective" digital EP series, alongside a previously unreleased track. The project sees Harleighblu - one of the most tipped talents in the UK's soul/electronic world - fusing her classic, hip hop-infused soul background with a varied and arresting platter of future beats, and a joyfully free and experimental vocal approach.
Since her earliest releases, Harleighblu's inimitable vocals have been hugely in demand by many of the world's hottest producers; the 'Futurespective' album illuminates a stunning collection of songs that have been developed over the last year in collaboration with a cluster of international talent.
Taking the boards, there's production from SpectraSoul, Audio Sparks, Captain Supernova alongside label mates Lost Midas, J-Felix and Jonny Faith. Each track brings a fresh sonic spin, with Harleighblu's charis- matic vocals and heartfelt, gritty songwriting tying it all together into a deeply immersive listen.
Futurespective sees Harleighblu taking the next definitive step and crafting a sharp, forward-think-ing style of soulful pop music dusted with grit and glitter in equal measure. As this young artist has metamorphosed, via the experiences and consequences of success coupled with the natural twists and turns of early-twenties life, so her frame of reference has shifted; in place of the more wide-eyed romantic leanings of old comes a frank, self-possessed lyrical voice that pulls no punches and makes no apologies.
