Vancouver's Soul Push releases latest single 'Good Man'
After years of writing and performing under different names, Canadian born Andrew Dixon, Dallyn Hunt, and Tim Morrison, paired with South African songwriter Conan Jurek, started releasing music under the name Soul Push in early 2020. From distant heartbreak and mental warfare to reassuring themes of sexuality and self-actualization, diversity is clear in Soul Push’s wide array of influences and lyrical content.
Harmonizing modernism with the romance of music’s earlier decades, the group affirms that there is still an art in storytelling. For them, music isn’t about finding an identity; it’s about exploring new ones. It’s R&B meets rock-pop, it’s gospel soul meets synthesizers - why put a label on it? Soul Push was formed after the quartet decided to chase inspiration and temporarily move their lives to Europe. After writing an album in London & recording it in a small town in Portugal, they returned to the North American scene.
Storming into 2020 with a deliciously R&B-leaning debut EP (“Body Is A Temple”) & their “Future Pop” single (“Your Touch”), Soul Push is armed with a fresh batch of songs and a clear trajectory towards a brand new identity. Their latest single is “Sticky Situation”, an infectiously danceable track with quirky grooves and edgy lyrics about Nintendo 64 and befriending vibrators instead of hanging out with your partner.
Bridging the gap between the 1960s idea of the future’s music and the world we live in today, this song is about a ladies man on his journey to taming himself for the right woman… finally becoming a “Good Man”. Drawing inspiration from artists like Tame Impala & Jungle, the song was written in London on a small vintage synth, then re-worked in a vintage house in Portugal with plenty of 60s-era décor with ~vibes~ all over it.
