I hear this song first i was just thinking, “whats wrong here”… The groove just took me over suddenly. Such a fascinating rhythm! I love her singing obviously. The songwriting is great because it is not so straight forward. Also loving the Rhodes chords and the great horn solo in the end of the song. I fell in love with this one.
They say: “Growing up and changing as a person can be scary”, Victoria Port (singer/songwriter) says of the lyrics for “Brave”, a track that expresses the strength that can come from time and change. Set against a backdrop from Max Wheeler (producer) that bounces between Dilla-inspired beats and a House tinge that is irresistible. The track follows previous singles “You My Love” and “Speak To Me” which received support from the likes of Lauren Laverne (BBC 6Music), Jack Saunders (BBC Radio 1) and Jamz Supernova (BBC 1Xtra).
Celebrating their growth and oneness both with the natural world and as a duo, ‘Yemaya’ is the band’s first full release since their debut album ‘Broken Circuit’ (Brownswood), which gained support from the likes of Gilles Peterson (who has since played exclusive demo previews of upcoming music), Annie Mac, Phil Taggart, Jamz Supernova, B.Traits and Mary Anne Hobbs alongside features in The Guardian, The Arts Desk and Dazed.
