Strut announce the signing of one of the best of the UK’s new generation of soulful genre-fluid artists, Nubiyan Twist, with a superb new single, ‘Tell It To Me Slowly’, released on 16th November.
Voiced by the band’s saxophonist Nick Richards, the song is an instant soul-jazz winner, with lyrics speaking about inner turmoil and a search for the truth. On the flip, ‘Sugar Cane’ features the unmistakeable vocals of Nubiya Brandon singing of harsh life lessons over an increasingly chaotic groove. The tracks are taken from the band’s forthcoming album, ‘Jungle Run’ which effortlessly weaves together elements of jazz, soul, hip hop, African styles, Latin, dub, hip hop and electronics in a flow of thought-provoking and life-affirming music. The single and album mark another important chapter for a band that has been consistently developing and evolving their sound since their formation in 2015 at Leeds College Of Music.
Nubiyan Twist’s ‘Tell It To Me Slowly’ b/w ‘Sugar Cane’ is released on 7” single, digital and streaming on 16th November. The band also head out for a series of European dates from next month:
