Swapping the clubs for the sun-kissed Caribbean beaches, Hollie Cook puts her lovers-rock spin on the UK garage classic ‘Sweet Like Chocolate’ by Shanks & Bigfoot.
‘Sweet Like Chocolate’ is a playful yet refined reworking of the 90s club favourite, following her triumphant ‘Vessel Of Love’ LP release earlier this year. Coming to fruition after the bass guitarist played the track backstage, Hollie spotted an opportunity to step out of her comfort zone and try something new. She explains “I thought that would be a great one to try, and slightly more contemporary than my previous cover attempts!”
Hollie’s third LP received widespread critical acclaim, taking the top spot on the Billboard Reggae Chart and reaching number three in the UK Independent Album Breakers Chart.
Hollie recently joined David Rodigan for a collection of prestigious London shows at The Royal Albert Hall, Somerset House and the Southbank Centre, sold out the Jazz Café in London and played with Rudimental at Sofar Sounds’ Amnesty International fundraiser. Her touring schedule continues this summer following sets at The Biggest Weekend, Latitude and Dour, with dates at Standon Calling, Oya, Boomtown and Festival No 6 – before stopping off in Manchester, Bristol, Liverpool, London and more.
