Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Push Up is a band that defies easy categorization. In their unique grooves, soul, funk, R & B, rock and jazz combine seamlessly in a hypnotic, colorful sound that simultaneously channels Gorillaz, Gnarls Barkley and Funkadelic. Push Up exploded on the scene in 2010 with their Discograph album The Grand Day of Quincy Brown, a recording that told the story of the fictional character's reflections on the meaning of life. The Day After takes up the story's narrative, as Brown's doubts, hopes and anger emerge. Push Up features the talents of jazz diva Sandra Nkaké, vocalist Karl Leury, slam poet Allonymous, Jean-Phi Dary on keyboards and Jî Drû on flute.
