JOSEPHINE & THE ARTIZANS – Let Me Go

| On 17, Feb 2014

Let Me Go Artwork

‘Let Me Go’ is not like anything I have ever heard before. This single by Josephine & The Artizans is a perfect mix of hip-hop, classical, rock, and pop, and shows how any kind of music can be blended together to form a very special hybrid genre.

The rough, street sound of the rap verses contrasted with the purity of the classical opera chorus and the violin weaving its way seamlessly through a heavy, cymbal-focused drumbeat makes for an interesting listen that sweeps you up in the track’s drama.

Josephine & The Artizans are a London-based “Hip-opera” band, which formed when Josephine, a classically trained vocalist, became tired of the gap between the classical music arena and the modern pop scene and set about recruiting musicians for a new project. The eleven-piece band has matured to create a sound that is a fresh, unique contribution to today’s music industry.

Having released their debut single, ‘Lacrymosa’ in October 2013, Josephine & The Artizans are showing off a positive progression into a more settled sound in ‘Let Me Go’ and if they stay on this upwards trend they are in good stead to produce some fantastic music in 2014.
