Blue Kubricks

Blue Kubricks are an up-and-coming Leeds-based alt-pop funk-rock band signed to Monomyth Records. The music video for their last release, ‘Latin’, garnered over 60,000 views on Facebook and the track is approaching 10,000 streams on Spotify. An exclusive track (‘Elizabeth’) was also featured by Leeds based label Come Play With Me on their ‘Boundless’ LP (compilation album), which ‘showcases some of the best new music from creatives of colour based in Yorkshire’. They recently performed on the BBC Introducing stage at Tramlines festival and supported The Luka State on the Leeds leg of their European tour.


Their first EP (‘Manuka’ – it’s all honey!), which will raise money for endangered bees with the charity Flora & Fauna International, is due to be released in February 2022 and ‘Comfortable Ride’ is the lead single. ‘Comfortable Ride’ is an infectious alternative disco track that combines irresistible, upbeat grooves with compelling vocals and an unforgettable chorus line. It’s pop,but not as you know it!


“This song was written when I was f***** and chucked by a girl in high school who then told me,two months later, she wanted to try again.It is not a nice feeling being treated like a yo-yo, ow no-no. I told her “I’m not your comfortable ride”. This song is the best thing I've ever been a part of and I need the world to hear it.” Jim


'Comfortable Ride' was born out of a collaboration with Leeds based producer Danny Blackburn (Uncle Buzzard &Adult DVD) and boy did he do an amazing job producing this indie disco nugget!


RGM magazine described the bands last offering 'Latin' as 'An energetic indie triumph from the Leeds rockers, packed to the rafters with in-your-face riffs and snarling vocals which leave your blood pumping and feet moving’.
