A double helping of rare Memphis D.I.Y. Vocal group energy, which ever side you drop the arm on.

Topside is a delicious fusion of male harmony supported by trademark Memphis horns. Funky riffs erupt on the opening, before the mood changes as the lead singer raps about his love. Before taking you on a journey of Soulful harmony, as fasettos, tenors blend into a mid-tempo delight. But the Funk dosn’t disappear completely it keeps on prompting, ensuring this is no ordinary stepper you are experiencing.

As on the other side you are in no doubt at any time, that you are about to be abducted by a tidal wave of Memphis modern-Funk. As “it’s Our Thing” pumps of the dance vibes from note-one.

Again, that Memphis tutored brass fills your space, pulsating guitar rhythms drive you to the dancefloor. Whilst the harmony vocals stay true to the production; as they project another layer of power the horns and guitars have laid down. The punctuating brass cuts through the air every time the vocals pause. A relentless indie groove..

Two very strong sides, from this one-single only band... one single release perhaps; but it gives up TWO impressive sides to consider.
