Brilliant UK jazz alert!
Made up of multi-instrumentalists Simeon Jones and Nathanael Williams, The Colours That Rise debut EP 2020 is a gorgeous amalgamation of funk, soul and electronic music with jazz grit.
The pair created the project using analogue synths and acoustic instruments, and as the press release proclaims “the EP works as the score to a yet to be created animation. ‘2020’ is an experimental electronic voyage that emerges from the ambient and arrives on the dance floor.”
The 4-track EP provides both the groove for the dancer and hidden meanings for the listener, The record “is plugged into the pulse of UK dancefloors and the resurgence of funk audiences. With their fusion sound, The Colours That Rise are another welcome addition to the new ‘UK Jazz invasion’ alongside their friends and colleagues Yussef Kamaal and The Comet is Coming.”
This EP will be in heavy rotation for some time. The “2020” EP is now available on Bandcamp. Grab it here.
