'Indecisive' has the infectious/lip pouting effect that hits you hard in the guts. More elements of funk & soul that their last single while still making good use of pumping hip hop drums. Heavy!!

The Harlots - Umma Gumma     Rock, Garage, Soul 15/08/2016
The Harlots:A smash and grab six-piece with jagged guitars, haunting keyboards and a rhythm section that’ll grab you by the lapels and un-tuck your shirt.Sting. Sweat. Shout.
Umma Gumma is a song about knowing you’ve got to get out of a relationship. It was written during a frustrated rehearsal when a couple of other new songs were pissing us off. The fast, frenetic nature of the song, when put with the lyrics gives it a desperate feel.

Sweethearts - JMF     Pop, Soul 11/08/2016
Four Leaf Clover is your classic Motown heartbreak with a youthful take on lost love, and a refreshing female energy.
The first track and single JMF sets the tone for listeners, grabbing with an inescapable funky bass
groove that gets feet tapping and blood pumping. The driving bass is followed by 80's disco
inspired synth, tight horn lines that quickly morph the track into a classic big band hit.

Other tracks by Sweethearts:  Peddington
Cheap Fakes - Deep Space     Funk/Soul, Reggae 10/08/2016
Dapper-dressed six piece Cheap Fakes are a much loved band for a reason; with suave moves and catchy tunes, their brass fuelled funk has been moving crowds for seven years.
Swirling and strident, “Deep Space” rings true with a slightly deeper vibe than perhaps initially expected; while the bands’ own inspirations still bubble forth, “Deep Space” doesn’t devolve into showboating, relying on an expert groove and simmering sustain to keep your ears hooked.

At The Space Jam - Hold On     Rock, Punk, Ska 01/08/2016

Leisure Centre is the brainchild of drummer and singer Hugh Rabinovici. A collection of sensual slow jams and bumping future soul dominated by rich, four-voice harmonies.
