Out now! Heart n Soul artists Too Hot for Candy release new single ‘Piece of Me’
Part of Heart n Soul’s SoundLab project, this unique collaboration sees the artists using technology from Korg to create brand new music. An official music video accompanies the track, with members of Too Hot for Candy and Grace Savage cast in the role of downtrodden office workers who bring the joy to their daily grind through music.
The trio – who cite Prince and Sly and the Family Stone as major influences – have built a following on the pure unadulterated fun of their live shows, mixing tight vocal harmonies, huge synth basslines and gospel drums with a touch of post-punk. With this latest release they’ve created a guaranteed party playlist must-add.
‘Piece of Me’ is the second in a series of artist collaborations facilitated by London-based creative arts organisation Heart n Soul as part of its SoundLab project, which explores ways of using innovative music technology to encourage people with learning disabilities to create music and sound experiences. The first collaboration with Dean Rodney Jr and the band Ravioli Me Away which used mi.mu gloves and Ableton technology. Together they produced the catchy track and music video for 'Dean TV Girls'. As part of the process, 'Dean TV Girls' and this new release are both accompanied by four ‘How to’ videos explaining how innovative technology has been used to make the new digital tracks. Too Hot for Candy and Grace Savage offer step-by-step insights into how they used Korg technology to create ‘Piece of Me’.
