“Success is just a muscle, so drop and give me twenty.” Ain’t that the truth. Le Grind are back with an aspirational dance anthem that picks you up off the floor and pushes you back into the ring. “Nothing comes from nothing”, so you’d better go work for it! Listen here
Inspired by the sounds of the underground Ballroom scene in late 1980’s NYC and films such as Paris Is Burning and more recently KIKI, Bricks is decorated in horn stabs, Chicago house pianos and 808 claps. Each lyric is delivered with a sassy snap, urging the apathetic Millennial to get off their butt and go work for it, “if you don’t break a sweat you’ve not earned it”. Reyna Lauren’s commanding vocal throws you up against the wall like Chaka Khan and Gwen Guthrie have just tag teamed your ass, whilst a pounding electronic kick drum nails the track firmly to any dance floor or runway.
The promo for Bricks casts a playful glance at the YouTube stars of today with Reyna Lauren playing Bricks O’Hara, a YouTube baker who has everyone from the neighbourhood hooked on her special cupcakes. The video follows her struggle from obscurity to YouTube stardom, culminating in her inevitable book deal.
Bricks is available to pre order alongside two self-penned remixes on June 16. Links:
