I caught Josh Idehen in his Benin City outfit at the London Jazz Festival a couple of years back, impressive in their support slot for SPOEK. His latest project is HUGH, a London quartet also featuring Izzy Brooks, Andy Highmore, and Tino Kolarides. Stylish yet substantial, new single 'Learn To Fall' is perhaps their best work to date.
The quiet beginnings of 'Learn To Fall' build into something more engaging, atmospheric and R&B-infused. Of particular note is the contrast between the alternating lead vocals of Brooks and Idehen, which offers an alluring, soulful mix.
