A sort of different take on the whole soul music-meets-beat music genre. (audio)
The idea of combining beat music with soul is nothing new. What helps separate Children of Zeus, this Manchester-based from the rest of the pack is that rather than taking things in the neo-soul route like most would, they go for more of a classic 80’s/90’s vibe for the vocal styling on this track. And given that flavor of the instrumental; drenched in cut-up, soulful goodnesss, I’d say the decision to go that route paid off, making for a song that can be replayed over and over and never grow tired of it. At least, not for me anyways.
The “I Can’t Wait” 7 inch is available now over at the group’s Bandcamp. Definitely grab this one before it sells out.
