Brownswood Recordings present this Double A Side 12" vinyl by Secret Night Gang, featuring outstanding tracks 'The Sun' and 'Journey', available in stores on 14th January 2022.
'The Sun' was inspired by a poem written by Callum Connell at the top of Greenwich Park viewpoint looking over the infamous London cityscape as the sun set. Inspired by four bass chords flowing like a stream of consciousness, Callum's poem sprung to life, with the melody being polished and refined by Kemani on keys and vocals. 'Journey' captures the essence of new wave Jazz Funk with its infectious joyful bassline, dynamic melodies and striking brass accents prominent throughout. Spreading that uplifting vital soul sound, transcending space and time, inviting you into the effervescent world of Secret Night Gang.
Secret Night Gang were handpicked by Gilles Peterson from Manchester's vibrant live music scene. Newly signed to Brownswood, 2021 is set to be the main stage for them to breeze on to the scene, as a multi-generational band breathing new life into the classic British street-soul sound, founded by singer/song-writer Kemani Anderson, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Callum Connell.
