New duo 14th give away the title track of their forthcoming EP ‘Hide Yourself’.
It begins with a simple piano and stripped down vocals from Tracey which showcases her unique voice. The song brings in elements of 90’s R&B and UK garage to create a nostalgic bass line and beat-driven track. 14th – Hide Yourself by 14th
‘Every day the 14th, I don’t think ya’ll heard me!’ For the Outkast fans out there, you will know where this lyric comes from, but for the Tracey Duodu and Tom Barber it was the inspiration for their band name after the duo got together over a dance-off at uni and a “let’s jam together sometime” proposition from Tracey.
The pair, one part South East London / one part West London, first got together two years after that fateful night with Tom deciding to text her, “You still singing?” and with that 14th were born and more importantly, their debut EP title track ‘Hide Yourself’.
They describe their music as, “Influenced by old school dance and rave with 90s beats and UK garage sounds” as well as a mix of their own vibes.
Reclaiming past music genres that had been partially forgotten in the music chasm, 14th are bringing back all the grooves and beats that inspired them growing up; breathing life into them, giving them a new heart and letting the living pulse set the rhythm. 14thmusic.com
