Mosaic is a heavy new three tracker from a band whose reputation exploded this spring with the release of debut album Murmuration.
Lead track Mosaic is full of the warmth of this heatwave-summer, syncopation and groove in abundance. Driving melodic lines and keyboard atmospherics suddenly give way to one of James O'Keefe's most powerful guitar solos to date, wild and psychedelic.
Transcoso brings the band to the downtempo magic that they have become much loved for. Heavily inspired by Azimuth, an hypnotic beat from drummer Jonny Drop eventually builds to a euphoric, almost slow disco climax for the final section.
'Mariposa' is a timely tribute. Debuted at their London album launch this take on the Freeez classic (although the live version in particular) explored a little more of the South London, Brit Funk influences that really drive the band.

It's clear, from how tight and precise tracks like 'Cannonball' sound, that this is a group of music heads doing what they love. We love it too. Lonely Table
