AUGUST is the solo project of London based artist Steve Hughes. With a mix of brooding electronica and emotive pop, the inspiration behind the name came as Hughes began working for the project in the month of August 2015 and also had an old song that he always liked the title of. Since then, AUGUST has released two singles to date. Debut single ‘SWORD’ was pure pop synth noir and quickly lit up the blogosphere. Recent single, ‘ANIMAL’, a song about finding salvation in the beautiful but brutal city of London, marked a step forward merging anthemic songwriting with a burning sense of fragility. It gathered support from numerous blogs as well as BBC INTRODUCING.
“In one fell swoop August seemed to stamp out a unique pop vision. ”
