After their much heralded album Feelin’ Real and the blisteringly anthemic follow up single Soul Of The Nation, The Sha La La’s have moved it on a notch still, with their latest EP, proudly released on Detour Records, Your Blind Soul.
Forget all the comparisons that have been made of them in the past, they’re 60’s R&B influences are apparent but make no mistake, their sound is definitely their own.
This EP has it all…The driving bass lines, thunderous drum fills, soulful guitar riffs all complimented by swirling Hammond and Wurlitzer combine to make you want to get up and get down!
Your Blind Soul opens and leaves you in no doubt of what’s to follow. This is “in yer face” driving soul at its best and it doesn’t let up. The title track carries you high above its head!
I defy you not to want to dance to the next offering, Bring It Down on You. Wah Wah pedals at the ready! Shut your eyes and you’re in a heaving, sweaty club!
Always There is a more introverted number but not lacking in the style and panache of its Side A cousins. With a nod to the Northern Soul scene and an incessant beat!
The final track on the EP, Do What’Cha Wanna, is the uplifting finale. The clue is in the title. A musical Tour De Force that really leaves you wanting to press repeat!
The Sha La La’s have done it again with four self-penned tracks which deserve your listening.
