All new music on Wah Wah 45s!
Brand new signing Maze Hill is the brain child of producer Andy Highmore, vocalist Holly Bestic and singer and spoken word artist Joshua Idehen.
You may be familiar with Josh from his work with legendary UK production outfit LV on the critically acclaimed Routes album. Or even from his output in London based Afro funk, punk collective Benin City.
With Maze Hill Joshua flexes his vocal chords a little more harmonically alongside the gorgeous tones of Holly Bestic and it is a genuine treat to hear his vocal talents in this context for the first time.
The trio brings together their influences including Beach House and Grizzly Bear with the production delivering reverbed out electronica, and more than a little soul and even jazz elements.
We think this will also be warmly welcomed by fans of the likes of Little Dragon and of course other Wah Wah artists including Stac and Scrimshire.
On Long Haul drum machines meat lush electronic keyboards and a deeply catchy vocal hook that describes the band's attitude and approach right from the start.
On this first single we're also giving you a stunning second track 'I Can Be Your Light'. This was one that first drew us to the band and we hope it will have the same effect on you. A tender and beautiful duet with a little more going on under the surface than your average piano ballad.
And to truly round off the debut in style we have a killer down beat remix from production masters LV.
Maze Hill will be doing a stripped down live set at our event at Scala on November 10th and will be delivering their debut album in the first half of 2013.
Ladies and Gentlemen - welcome to Maze Hill.
