For their new album “Lest We Forget What We Came Here To Do,” Sons Of Kemet step even further into the world of jazz, delivering an album stuffed to the rafters with the euphoric, danceable grooves and riffs that made their first album ‘Burn’ such an unprecedented success. The album is still over a month away but today we proudly premiere “Tiger” a hard-hitting and intense track.
Band-leader Shabaka Hutchings regards Sons Of Kemet’s hotly anticipated second album, Lest We Forget What We Came Here To Do, as a vivid continuation of their debut work’s themes, rather than a complete departure. He also describes the latest collection as “a meditation on the Caribbean diaspora in Britain”.
“The realisation dawned after I’d started writing these tunes,’ he explains. ‘I was thinking of my grandmother’s generation from the Caribbean, who came here to work incredibly hard, and also what it means to be a black person in Britain now, especially a generation of youth experiencing high unemployment, and those elements of society who are not always easy to see.”
The impressive sounds that attracted fans to the quartet are on full display with their latest track—a frenetic, complex and constantly evolving song that whets the appetite for their highly anticipated second album.
