We Are Many

A 1 track soul jazz single (4m 41s) — released August 28th 2020 on Wah Wah 45s

Soothsayers are something of a South London musical institution. Having released eight albums over the course of twenty years, they're poised to drop their ninth, and second on Wah Wah 45s, entitled We Are Many, this November. Recorded both in their favourite part of the capital and across the globe in Sao Paulo, it's a fascinating blend of their trademark dub and Afrobeat flavours mixed with some distinctly Brazilian inflections. Not only that, it represents a positive and uplifting statement in challenging times - the overriding power of the music leading the band to continue forward, ever pushing their musical boundaries and concepts.

This first single, and title track, is the result of a collaboration with acclaimed musicians and producers Kwake and Wu-lu. This partnership grew in significance during the recording of the album, and this track was one of the first to come to fruition as a result of this connection.

"Recorded at The Room Studio in South East London, we jammed and explored with sonics and harmonics until we got something satisfyingly different but also relevant to the current UK jazz scene, with which we all intersect in different ways. It's a real pleasure to be creating with these two behind-the-scenes heavyweights of current cutting-edge British music. The result is a serious groove-based instrumental track with a nod to electronics, dub sonics and space for improvisational flair from all involved." Idris Rahman (Soothsayers)
