My second submission, after “Red Dress”, by this Leeds based band featuring the dulcet tones of Ruby Wood, and the lush pseudo-orchestration led by the trumpet of Tommy Evans. This is a seven minute build of electronica/jazz which pretty much sums up the musical style you can expect from each of their four albums.
Endorsed by Radio 6 presenter Gilles Peterson, Submotion tour regularly, their set a blaze of brass and deep reverb trance, with Ruby, sultry to the core, at the head. “Kites” is their most recent release; I commend it to any of you who enjoy this curation.
