Highlight – New Hope Club
They are pairing gorgeously written lyrics with a stadium rock sound, we Highlight – New Hope Club, an exciting trio from Manchester that has been taking the world by storm. From touring in support of The Vamps to headlining festivals in Asia, and releasing their new singles “L.U.S.H” and “Walk It Out”, New Hope Club has had an exciting and busy past few years. Recently Hidden Beats had the opportunity to chat with Reece, Blake, and George to discuss their journey and what is coming next.
When it comes to the inspiration behind the sounds of “L.U.S.H.” and “Walk It Out”, New Hope Club said the goal for these songs was to capture the sound and energy of a New Hope Club live show. With a punchier, guitar-driven sound, these new tracks show an evolution of the songwriting trio. When asked to describe “L.U.S.H.”, the boys described it as a song about a new relationship’s urgency and “sauciness”. Showing their musical abilities, “L.U.S.H.” resulted from a jam session, with Reece stumbling upon the opening riff that gave the song its “sexy” feel.
Variety of Styles
Coming out of the lockdown, New Hope Club had a full album’s worth of material that had yet to be heard by anyone, so they made a showcase tour that they performed acoustically to really show off their songwriting and musical abilities. Reece in particular wanted the first time the public heard these songs they are stripped back and heard just like how they wrote them alone in a room. BUT… the boys also love to put on a good show! George and Blake made it known that there is a firm rule for anyone that goes to their full electric show: no one leaves with their voice intact! George loves to go crazy and push the high-energy atmosphere so that everyone has the best time possible.
