After the success of their popular debut acclaimed album ‘Adventure’, (which has generated over 1 million album streams on Spotify in just 6 months). Lydian Collective are now following this up with their new single ‘High 555’.
The first release helped to put themselves firmly on the map of the instrumental Jazz Funk Fusion scene, which has has lead onto recent appearances at festivals such as Cheltenham Jazz, ‘So What’s Next’ Festival in The Netherlands, Cambridge Jazz Festival and plays on BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction show; as well as features on Spotify’s ‘The State of Jazz’ and ‘Fusion Fest’ playlists.
After the intricate and rhythmically complex ‘Adventure’ album, they have now shifted gears on this single with a hi-octane stomping four to the floor danceable fun and funky groove, led by a phat distorted synth bass line!
‘High 555’ takes the listener through the usual compositional twists and turns that have made Lydian Collective tunes so popular, but this time the focus is on a solid groove to get the body moving!
‘High 555’ came out on 30th November and will be part of an EP, which is due to be released in Spring next year.
The band also support Billy Cobham on Dec 5th & 6th at London’s Jazz Café.
