Earlier this year UK production collective Gotts Street Park released their inspired debut single, "This World," an old school hip-hop influenced boom-bap arrangement featuring London rapper Benny Mails. That was followed by the instrumental "Sleep" before the Leeds group dropped "Love In Bad Company."
Taken from their forthcoming debut EP, Volume One, "Love In Bad Company" is another showcase of the groups diverse musical pallet. Taking cues from soul, jazz and R&B, the song is a thing of beauty, with Leeds-based vocalist Dielle providing her dulcet tones.
Talking with The FADER via email, Gotts Street Park member Josh Crocker had this to say about the track;
"'Love In Bad Company' came about during a period when we were all playing around the local venues in Leeds for different projects and occasionally together. We came across Dielle singing in one of the few open mic nights in Leeds. We were blown away by her vocal and immediately felt she fitted the vibe of Gotts Street Park. We're keen to shed light on real hard-working singers, that do it for the love more than anything. There's an authenticity and passion you get that sometimes isn't there once a singer has been put through a machine. 'Love In Bad Company' was written with me, it's about a personal struggle we both had experience with at the time. It highlights the darker side of relationships and fits into the murky and cathartic world that the rest of the forthcoming EP conjures up."
Volume One is set to drop June 16.
