SOUNDQ is the solo musical project of Kuba Kubica, a vocalist and producer from Cracow in Poland. Though is sound his conceptually electronic, a solidly expressive take on humanity is very much at the core of what he does.
Kubica’s voice bears a passing resemblance to that of Paddy McAloon who is best known for his work with Prefab Sprout. He has that same skill of taking the emotional intensity inherent in a voice and utilising that quality in conjunction with finely crafted lyrics in order to heighten their already deep message.
Though very upbeat and with a clubbable vibe, that understated Prefab Sprout influence continues in the arrangement and melody, quietly engaging with and certainly energising the listener as it weaves dance, rock and more into a comforting cocoon of sound.
This Heart is out now and can be streamed on Soundcloud as well as downloaded on Bandcamp. For information on other streaming and downloading options check out Kubica’s Facebook page, as well as his Instagram and Twitter accounts.
