Let’s Get Arrested/ The Hump – Supertonic Sound Club (AMTY)

-

The latest release from Irish soul/ reggae outfit Supertonic Sound Club is a continuati­on of their rise to what must surely be chart success at some point.

Taken from their forthcomin­g debut album, this twin hitter is further validation of the talent that this young band holds. The first track is massively reminiscen­t of the late Amy Winehouse as produced by Mark Ronson. Pained but passionate female vocals sing over a big brassy soul sound. Aimed firmly at the dance floor, this is as good a modern pop soul record as you could imagine. Following it up is something of a change of mood. An instrument­al, The Hump probably owes as much to late Sixties to mid-Seventies funk and soul as anything else. Various instrument­s take the lead through the track – there’s a slight expectatio­n of a voice to come through, saying ‘and on bass...’ at times, but it isn’t a track for showcasing, more of showing how they all work together to create a good-time sound. Given the band’s track record on previous releases, the album can’t drop soon enough for these ears, but as a taster of what is to come then I’d grab a copy of this before it sells out.
