about

On The Expansions - Murmuration:
"A stunning astral journey into soulful sonics from the South London quartet." Stamp The Wax

"This quartet rides high on a rich jazz-funk tradition that’s making inroads into contemporary dance music left, right and centre." The Vinyl Factory

"The time and craftsmanship on Murmuration is evident from the off... This is a group of music heads doing what they love. We love it too." The Lonely Table

Huey Morgan, Record Of The Week, BBC Radio 6 Music

=========


Mosaic is a heavy new three-track EP from a band whose reputation exploded this spring with the release of debut album Murmuration.

Lead track Mosaic is full of the warmth of this heatwave-summer, syncopation and groove in abundance. Driving melodic lines and keyboard atmospherics suddenly give way to one of James O’Keefe’s most powerful guitar solos to date, wild and psychedelic.

Transcoso brings you the down-tempo magic that they have become so much loved for. Heavily inspired by Azimuth, an hypnotic beat from drummer Jonny Drop eventually builds to a euphoric, almost slow disco climax for the final section.

And finally, Mariposa is a timely tribute. Debuted at their London album launch this take on the Freeez classic (although the live version in particular) explores a little more of the South London, Brit Funk influences that really drive the band.
