HOWES3 – ‘Avenue’ (Premiere)
We’re extremely excited to give you first ears to ‘Avenue’, the new single from forward thinking Jazz and Funk fusion trio HOWES3.
The Brighton music scene is thriving at the moment, boasting home grown talents on the rise such as Yakul, Francesca Fulmini, Ebi Soda, Natty Reeves and now HOWES3, who first came to our attention at the Brighton Funk & Soul Weekender.
After falling in love with their debut single ‘Moving Forward’ a couple of months back, we had high hopes for their follow up release and we weren’t left disappointed. Fizzing drums, stabbed chords and a deliciously thick purring bass line combine with zany lead synth keys for a track that’s bursting at the seams with groove and funk.
During a time when we’re seeing a jazz renaissance amongst younger listeners in particular, ‘Avenue’ is infectious and accessible enough for the newbies whilst boasting more than enough musicality to challenge and please the seasoned jazz heads. It’s a fine line to tread and HOWES3 manage to dance along it joyfully.
If you want to catch these guys live they’ll be headlining the legendary Vortex club on the 31st of August. See you there!
