A fine introduction to the band, Day By Day is all at once an experimental, jazz-kissed arena of beautiful chaos, and an addictively rhythmic, soulful hip hop classic that effectively marches to the beat of its own drum.
It’s a tremendous, accomplished slice of nostalgia-drenched songwriting that puts a big smile on my face.
An acoustic strum, an arrangement of voices, that raw, unedited presentation – you know the sound, and you trust it to offer something real; refreshing.
“If I could change anything about the music industry it would have to be the politics and the overly sexualized demand and pressure placed on artists to be a size 2 or a lighter shade just to make it.”
Whether it’s to light up the commute to work, or to ignite the good vibes at the weekend, Thank You is a colourful and multi-layered expression of gratitude that beautifully fulfills its intentions. Well worth a listen at volume.
We’re all too busy for the important things sometimes, too busy being right, self-involved, arguing. We should be busy being happy resounds from the quiet instrumental break, staying with you long after listening.
Peter Sirah drives with a thick bass-line and a clear-cut, clean and up front rap vocal – two simple yet striking elements that draw you right into the centre of this new single.
Take You Home is a powerful and rather stunning new single, one that quickly progresses from good to great as the various sections and the real truth and grit of the story come into play.
Another absolute beast of a single, from the UK’s own King Casual – Get Up / Get Down really is as uplifting and energizing as the title implies.
Fusing the better parts of all that’s uplifting and energizing about music in general, Energy is everything the title promises and then some, progressing from a simple swagger of a moment to something multi-layered and fully immersive.
Vampire Son is a fierce and fiery new track, multi-layered and colourful but in a subtle and intentional manner, and perfectly well balanced in terms of matching great songwriting with superb production. An absolute winner of a come-back.
While the title is a nod to modern life, the phrasing, the tech, the search for understanding, what you’ll ultimately find within is a country-rock, jazz-piano-soaked classic – an explosion of organic instrumentation, high energy and nostalgia; enough so to take you way back to bar fights and big bands.
