Following last year's rave-reviewed Academy gig, the Geordie Soul crew will return with their fusion of Funk, Soul, Northern Soul and Hip-Hop. Their music has been championed by BBC Radio 2 who have featured the band in many of their playlists.
Championed by both BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 6, as well as fellow soul head Craig Charles, who strongly praises the band as "one of the greatest modern soul bands to emerge from the UK". The band are touring their most recent release 'Stratos Bleu', which pair's Turrell’s conscious lyricism with Smoove’s impeccable production, all whilst utilising keyboard player Mike Porter’s collection of analogue synths to nod to heady days of early 90’s clubbing which may be a surprise to some but in the context of this band as dancefloor favourites, this makes perfect sense.
Despite lockdown, the album scored the band their first official UK charts Number 1 (Dance Album Chart) as well as making a healthy dent in the Overall album Top 40. Alongside this they were given an Album of the Day accolade at BBC 6 music, cementing the fact that 6 albums in, their brand of gritty realism doused in dancefloor euphoria is more relevant than ever.
Their material draws on subject matters aimed at making us stop and think, with songs such as the politically charged ‘Hate Seeking Missile’ balanced fittingly with uplifting stompers such as ‘I Feel Alive’, guaranteeing to get even the most resistant of dancers toe-tapping.
The band has also picked up many fans worldwide, including on the US West Coast with much success in TV & film after support on tastemaker station KCRW. Alongside this, their extensive touring and appeal across borders have been recognised by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), who were awarded funding to assist with an extended overseas touring schedule.
