30/70 release their new single ‘Tastes Like Freedom’ at Howler.
The irrepressible 30/70 return to Rhythm Section International with a hot and heavy surprise single, ‘Tastes Like Freedom’, just in time for the 3rd summer of love. Emotive, intimate and provoking a radical sensuality only Allysha Joy and her ensemble can conjure, TLF expands and unfolds over 9 minutes of free-floating jazz-funk. Ziggy Zeitgeist’s skittering, broken beat-leaning hats and Josh Kelly’s 90’s film noir-esc saxophone coalesce to throw the mood down-town.
As always, the band go deep... Still, it hits a steppy tempo ~ perfectly poised for the summer dancefloor. It’s a blissful, lively roller as much as it’s a nostalgia-drenched neo-soul love song. And with a remix package on the way from some of the finest producers in electronic music, you can be sure ‘Tastes Like Freedom’ will be causing a stir.
Over the last few years, 30/70 have become something of a supergroup: with Allysha Joy, Ziggy Zeitgeist, Josh Kelly and Matthew Hayes all soaring as solo artists and band leaders. Individual talents aside, there’s nothing quite like the 30/70 collective united as one unstoppable force; and the synergy is palpable in this tantalising tour-de force.
30/70 have seen previous support from across the board from Gilles Peterson, Carista, Jamz Supernova, Jamie Cullum, Tom Ravenscroft, Alex Nut, Children of Zeus & Mary Anne-Hobbs.
30/70 features Lucky Pereira on Kit, Josh Kelly on Saxophone, Finn Rees on Keys, Matt Hayes on Bass, Jaydean and Belle Bangard on Vocals and the ineffable Allysha Joy. Supports from Aarti Jadu and Kita, presented by WAT Artists and Rhythm Section International.
