Fried
The new single ‘Whatever I Choose I Loose’
Released August 23rd on London Records


Widely tipped to be one of the UK’s big breakthrough acts this year, Fried are set to release their debut single ‘Whatever I Choose I Lose’ on August 23rd on London Records ahead of the September release of their debut album.

Consisting of former Fine Young Cannibals songwriter David Steele and the outstandingly gifted 23-year old New Orleans vocalist Jonte Short, Fried’s ‘Whatever I Choose I Loose’ has already received an overwhelmingly positive reaction with many listeners making favourable comparisons with Lauryn Hill and Macy Gray.

Steele discovered Short at the 2001 New Orleans Jazz Festival after a five-year search for a ‘mind-blowing’ singer and immediately knew she was right.

“I’d been everywhere,” he says. “I saw a lot of OK people, but nobody I listened to and thought – ‘fucking hell’.” It’s now been eight years – eight years – since his role in Fine Young Cannibals. David is nothing if not exacting.

The music is unique. Jonte’s vocals would make a car melt – the songs are searing, soulful. But forget crappy Notting Hill pseudo funk, or corporate dance tunes predestined for some wanky car campaign. The feel is pure Motown, blues and real R&B, but it’s not retro; there is a contribution from RZA and a song co-written with Beth from Portishead.

‘In a way my ambition is almost done,’ says David. ‘What I wanted to do was make an amazing record, and we’ve done that.’
