Biography

Le Grind are Reyna Lauren (vocals), Gareth (songwriting / instrumentation / production) and Boo (drums / production).

Formed on the sticky dance floor of a nightclub in Queens, NY. London based friends Gareth and Boo met native New Yorker Reyna Lauren whilst collectively singing along to a Prince track. Quickly becoming friends the trio recorded their debut underground club track I Was There (Where Were You?). The track received glowing press from the likes of MTV and Popjustice and the promo even featured a cameo by Marc Almond.

And now Le Grind are set to release Bricks, the follow up to the critically acclaimed Pillow Talk, a song the Guardian called the “most infectious dance track ever” and which received radio support from BBC6 Music, KissFM and Gaydio.

Inspired by the sounds of the underground Ballroom scene in late 1980’s NYC and films such as Paris Is Burning and more recently KIKI, Bricks is decorated in horn stabs, chicago house pianos and 808 claps. Each lyric is delivered with a sassy snap, urging the apathetic Millennial to get off their butt and go work for it, “if you don’t break a sweat you’ve not earned it”. Reyna Lauren’s commanding vocal throws you up against the wall like Chaka Khan and Gwen Guthrie have just tag teamed your ass, whilst a pounding electronic kick drum nails the track firmly to any dance floor or runway.

Bricks will be released on July 21, 2017.
