Toronto-based indie soul / disco / funk / house duo Tush share a new set of visuals to their latest single, “Don’t Be Afraid.” Comprised of lead vocalist Kamilah Apong and musician Jamie Kidd, Tush has gained notoriety across the Toronto music scene, building a reputation for themselves off of their electrifying live shows and infectious rhythms. This latest release features backing vocals by Lydia Persaud, R-Flex, Shahi Teruko and Tafari Anthony in addition to contributions from Tush’s touring bandmates – Miles Gibbons (drums), Alexa Belgrave (keys), alongside Tush’s Jamie Kidd (bass and fx). This latest video was directed by band member Kamilah Apong, alongside Aidan Jeans.
“The lyrics and vocal arrangements were written in a parking lot of a casino in rural Alberta,” explains Kamilah. “Ultimately, the song is about having the courage to love defiantly, urgently, and with intention…I was exploring if loving someone else, could be the same as loving yourself.”
