Louis VI has released his heartfelt new track ‘Confidence’ produced by Jowin and accompanied by Nubya Garcia’s masterful saxophone instrumental. The song is an introspective anthem calling to embrace individual strength in the face of unfulfilled love. The song pays homage to his deeply rooted jazz influences combined with a certain urban sensibility. The collaboration amongst the two was an organic one. Both grew up within the epicentre of the UK jazz scene and when it came time for Louis to decide on the best person to work with, Nubya made absolute sense.
“The track is an expression of a man trying to show confidence to a girl. ‘Confidence’ is about some unfulfilled love in the hood, a man and a woman falling for each other but not saying anything about it because they know she’s in a relationship. If they could just both show some ‘Confidence’, then maybe they would have something real but they are both hiding from the truth because it’s easier. Love is a complex thing and running from reality is something that happens a lot.” Louis VI
‘Confidence’ comes just weeks after the release of Louis VI’s self-produced “Jazz Got Me” featuring Mick Jenkins. The vibe of the song is heavily Jazz infused but beautifully melted with a tempo more akin to trap & grime. The combination of the double bass, live trumpet & trappy drums create an infectious energy making the track something musically never heard before.
