Bristol-based band Ishmael Ensemble return with ‘The Rebuke’, their first single since the release of the critically acclaimed second album ‘Visions of Light’.
The Rebuke is composed of 7 repeating lines written by band leader Pete Cunningham and singer Holysseus Fly, which became a great source of comfort and catharsis during the latter’s breast cancer treatment.
Using the drum & bass & jungle records, Pete played at local warehouse parties and quarry raves in his teenage years as inspiration for this track, an era he has yet to reference so explicitly.
On ‘The Rebuke’ singer Holysseus Fly says :
Watch the Jack Lilley video above and purchase the new track on Bandcamp if you haven’t done so already.
