Muscular‘s feel-good, modern funk vibes arrive with his new single Keep The Lights On, featuring Sam Huber.
Your disco senses will tingle from play and become uplifted by the catchy chorus and sweet Sax notes. Muscular lays his smooth vocals, complemented by Sam injecting his deliciously deep soul harmonies.
Finnish funk pioneer Sam Huber is more commonly heard as the lead singer in the stimulatingly named funk band Eternal Erection (aka Rick Lover). A vocalist whose voice vibrates with raw blues and soul Sam has previously collaborated with American Amp Fiddler (Parliament-Funkadelic ’85-96).
“The song is about a crisis on the dance floor. At some point, you should steady on, but you do not feel like it. Is it still possible to blend in with the youngsters? Are you past that point ages ago? After a long break finding yourself on the dance floor, you feel anxious. Too many people in a too-small space. Thin air. This song encourages you to Keep The Lights On in these difficult times. We Still Got The Groove!” – Muscular
Keep The Lights On marks the fourth release from Muscular following his previously electrifying single Demons with the wonderful Linda Ilves on guest vocals.
Behind Muscular is the Finnish keyboard player and pianist Ilmari Aitoaho (b.1988). Currently, he is also part of funk-rock group East Funk Attack, Motown inspired soul band Punomo (whose debut album PUNOMO set a benchmark for soul album of the year) and indie-rock cult Yournalist.
As a solo artist, Muscular is flexing some seriously funky muscles. Play this one loud!
Keep The Lights On is taken from Musculars’ forthcoming debut EP Drink Tonight.
