Blue Kubricks have today released Comfortable Ride, the lead single from their forthcoming EP, Manuka.
Blue Kubricks are an up-and-coming Leeds-based alt-pop funk-rock band signed to Monomyth Records. Their previous single, Latin was a massive success, getting thousands of streams on Facebook and Spotify. An exclusive track (‘Elizabeth’) was also featured by Leeds based label Come Play With Me on their ‘Boundless’ LP (compilation album), which ‘showcases some of the best new music from creatives of colour based in Yorkshire’. They recently performed on the BBC Introducing stage at Tramlines festival and supported The Luka State on the Leeds leg of their European tour.
Their first EP (‘Manuka’ – it’s all honey!), which will raise money for endangered bees with the charity Flora & Fauna International, is due to be released in February 2022 and ‘Comfortable Ride’ is the lead single.
‘Comfortable Ride’ is an infectious alternative disco track that combines irresistible, upbeat grooves with compelling vocals and an unforgettable chorus line. It’s pop, but not as you know it!
“This song was written when I was fucked and chucked by a girl in high school who then told me, two months later, she wanted to try again. It is not a nice feeling being treated like a yo-yo, ow no-no. I told her “I’m not your comfortable ride”. This song is the best thing I’ve ever been a part of and I need the world to hear it.” Jim Duah.
‘Comfortable Ride‘ was born out of a collaboration with Leeds based producer Danny Blackburn (Uncle Buzzard & Adult DVD) to produce this indie disco nugget.
