UK-based soul titans Mamas Gun release a special 7inch vinyl single with two favourites from their new album “Cure The Jones”, featuring “Party For One” and “Looking For Moses”.
“Party For One” is a modern soul classic. Driven by a low-slung bass line the track melds dreamy vocals, lush orchestration and psychedelic effects to deliver a healing balm to modern hardships.
Lead singer Andy Platts comments: "Lyrically ‘Party For One’ comes from me being a bit of a loner - I like my own company and space to create, think and reflect. I was in my ideal world during the early stages of the pandemic, on my own and with no one around, but I was mourning the company of strangers. There is something in anonymous togetherness that is the stuff of life."
Written the day Bill Withers passed away, “Looking For Moses” pays righteous homage to the great soul man with Andy Platts’ honeyed vocals bringing apposite warmth to a joyously groovy and beautifully crafted slice of soul.
