Jérémie & The Delicious Hounds are new-age fosterers of soul music with a uniquely Canadian twist. Hailing from St. Boniface, the old French quarter of Winnipeg, they have crafted their identity as bilingual artists with their forthcoming full-length album. The Delicious Hounds name is a play on words about their “delicious sound” of smooth melodies, juicy guitar riffs and tasty horn licks. Jérémie’s smooth yet smoky voice is accented with a brilliant brass section to deliver round after round of phenomenal hits on golden platters.
Cruel infuses nine fun-loving songs about amour and heartbreak in a mixture of both English and French, serving as an authentic representation of the languages they speak at home. The title track is about that combination of pleasure and pain—desiring someone that’s cruel to you and the consequential heartache. Sexy and dancy with somber undertones, “Cruel” has a funky disco vibe.
Jérémie’s staple friendliness, positive vibes and charismatic nature culminate into a profound presence that leaves listeners swooning for another bite of their unique modern twist on old-school rhythm and beats. The funky frontman assembled a full 8-piece band and they’ve been cooking up dance floors all across Canada ever since.
