Fresh on the London music scene, Hot Under Collar are four friends who fuse the best of Funk, Rock, Soul and Hip Hop to form a unique and mature sound way beyond their tender age of 19. Despite having formed in 2012, HUC have already gone on to showcase their talents at some of London’s most popular venues including Camden’s Barfly, The Garage, The Borderline and Islington’s 02 Academy. A clear determination and passion is evident at their live shows which has resulted in bigger, excited and loyal crowds, including the likes of Ed Sheeran. Their music consists of catchy and original lyrics, punchy bass lines, melodic guitar riffs and tight, high-powered drumming. HUC are made up of Josh Ali on vocals and rhythm guitar, Chris Lambrou on lead guitar, Denzel Clarkson on bass guitar and Herman Kiafuca on drums.
The new single, ‘So Cold’, is an example of the bands ability to combine multiple genres, resulting in a new and exciting sound. Inspiration from greats such as Red Hot Chili Peppers and Arctic Monkeys can be heard, but all four members of HUC leave their own touch on the track, resulting in a distinctive sound that you can expect to hear more of later this year.
