Joshua Idehen will be a familiar name to many — partly due to his work with LV and as a member of Benin City, and those same fans will no doubt get a kick out of his new project, Hugh. The new four-piece consists of Josh, singer-songwriter Izzy Brooks, producer Andy Highmore and guitarist Tino Kolarides — and today, they present their new single "Go" (released on May 5) exclusively via Complex.
Hints of Scandinavian electro-pop, house, and disco all swirl together on "Go". Izzy, who takes inspiration from greats like Lauryn Hill and Lykke Li, says she wrote the song to articulate the overwhelming feeling of attraction or infatuation she felt when she met a boy. "I remember there was green light flooding in from the surface, my lungs hurt and the excitement was so heavy it almost felt like I couldn't breathe," she explained. "Though I knew I probably should have jumped out, I stayed down beneath the waves, facing this person who had this hypnotic hold over me. It was crazy."
Entrancing, absorbing and utterly seductive, Hugh is yet another Idehen project to fall in love with. Listen to "Go" exclusively below.
