Channelling the funk-driven musicality of bands like Atmosfear and Dego’s 2000Black Family and the smooth, East Coast deep house charm of Patrice Scott and Kyle Hall, A Band Called Flash follow up last year’s triumphant debut with sophomore release S/T EP. Ron Trent remains the Executive Producer, returning to Future Vision Records, a familiar home that’s been putting out his work for near on a decade. Muffled, Shoegazey vocals filter in and out, balearic guitar licks and an elasticated bassline canter along, within an arrangement that provides a sustained modesty, only deviating when some Rhodes chords periodically inject some extra energy. Not a track to provide euphoric highs, but a humble delight all the same.
S/T EP is out now and available from Rush Hour.
