Hugo Valentine – ‘Trouble’

Melding catchy pop hooks with thought provoking lyrics, Staccato Piano and winding melodies, Hugo Valentine’s upcoming single ‘Trouble’ demonstrates his strong songwriting capability and makes good use of his classical musical training.

Out on October 25, the track begins with an almost techno/pop infusion intro before transforming into a blistering Piano led pop song sounding like it’s come straight out of a midsummer beach party. Uplifting and inspiring, Valentine lightly dusts this track with his usual magic making for an enchanting, good-all-round pop song, and while not particularly groundbreaking, will be sure to breathe some life into an otherwise bleak October.

‘Trouble’ is out October 25. You can catch Hugo Valentine at Paper Dress Vintage, Hackney, on November 12, for the launch of his new single, ‘Trouble’. Find Hugo online on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, SoundCloud, and his official website.
