Canadian soul collective Chic Gamine release a video to their debut UK single 'Shake Off Your Worries' which is due out on December 1st 2013. It features on their second studio album 'Closer' which was first released in Canada in 2010.
It's a simple performance video and the track is virtually a cappella with hand-clapping and foot-stomping as the only rhythm before a little percussion is introduced. There is no need for anything other than simplicity in a video for a song this powerful. The God-inspired lyrics are sung with an incredible amount of soul - the refined vocal dexterity only enhanced by the retro style harmonies from backing singers.
The Motown inspired band have been around since 2007, impressing their Canadian audience with their self-titled debut album which won them a Juno Award. Among their high profile shows are two consecutive spots at Texas' SXSW Festival and a performance at the 2012 winter Olympics. They are set to tour the UK this year after introducing their sound to the nation, including three London shows. The band described 'Closer' as autobiographical to everyone in the group. 'Recurring themes would for sure be heartbreak and figuring out life as a 20-30 something but also there is hopefulness and a childlike playfulness in the way that those themes are represented, so it's not just one big sad record', they said.
