MAGICALLY FUSE OLD & NEW INTO A MUST-HEAR SOUND
Eh440, the incredible Toronto-based vocal group has been stunning audiences worldwide since they first hit the stage a few years ago.
With just a beatboxer, bass vocalist, and 3 very different lead singers, this means that they are technically an ‘a cappella’ group but most people think of them as something very different.
"You forget that there aren’t any instruments because they really do sound like a full band!" said one fan. "They sound hip and current. It’s like they magically fuse old and new into a must-hear sound. And I love that they write their own songs because it makes me feel so connected to them as people."
Following the release of their award-winning 2014 debut release Turn Me Up, Eh440 wanted to step things up to a new level. A level they hadn’t yet achieved – the boss level!
Boss Level is a phrase that stems from gaming culture and is now starting to creep into the mainstream. In a video game, the final level to win the game (where you encounter & battle the biggest & strongest character – the boss) is called the Boss Level. But now, any ultimate level of achievement where you take on your most formidable foe is the boss level.
When they started writing songs for their next album, the band claims that the songs felt very 'top level' so when they wrote Boss Level, naturally that was going to be the title track.
Boss Level’s September 2016 release has generated some exciting fan reviews too. Some are saying they can’t stop playing it on repeat. Others are saying that a particular song has inspired them in some way. So this latest release is clearly a step in a new direction for Eh440 and they are getting exactly what the album title says 'boss level feedback about a boss level album' and they couldn’t be more excited!
