Sid Batham is back with his larger than life love song ‘Higher Love’. The energy-boosting offering flaunts a funk-fuelled rhythm, vintage synths and Sid’s soaring vocals. The track started life like all of Sid’s songs; at his home studio and was finished and mixed by Rob Brinkmann at Kite Yard, Battersea. All parts are played by Sid himself, co-producing the record alongside Brinkmann.
‘Higher Love’ blends both old and new, it’s classic yet timeless. It’s a mix of glitch soul and new electronica that defies easy definition. The sweet melodies of this romantic track arrive just in time for Valentine’s Day!
After the release of his ‘The Demo Tapes’ EP in 2019, Sid locked himself away in the studio once again to work on his debut album. The multi-instrumentalist experimented over and over with his new set of songs, determined to outdo what had come before.
Sid shares: “This feels like the truest fully realised vision of what I was trying to do previously. Everything has been done live so it’s much more raw — no cutting corners”.
With previous support from the likes of acclaimed publications such as Clash and The Line Of Best Fit, as well as huge radio support from BBC Radio 1xtra (Jamz Supernova) and BBC Radio London, Sid is making strides with his unique artistry.
