Creating a fiercely flavoursome breed of rock ‘n’ roll described as grunge soul, British band Sabatta follow up the release towards the end of last year of their well-received album Middle Of The Night with a new single in the fiery shape of its title-track. The track is a feverish mix of styles and flavours epitomising the band’s broad sound and a tenacious energy which ignites their live presence and its parent release.
Led by singer/songwriter guitarist Yinka Oyewole, the London based Sabatta has toured across the UK and Europe as well as the US over the years, sharing stages with the likes of Peter Doherty, Slaves to Gravity, Saul Williams, Zoe Kravitz, and Janelle Monae along the way. Numerous festivals has embraced the band’s crowd inciting live show too, whilst later albums like Emperor’s New Clothes and Sabatta have especially drawn acclaim and attention. With Oyewole exploring solo material as well as making appearances in films, TV, and music videos with the likes of Kevin Bacon, Ashley Waters, and James Arthur since 2011, the quiet Sabatta bounced back into ears in fine style with Middle Of The Night in 2015, its title track now poised to spark 2016 off in the same way last year ended for the band.
A guitar jangle and rhythmic roll breaks the silence first, its repeated rally sparking a strolling groove spreading sultry tendrils as the quickly engaging vocals of Oyewole join the brewing party. It is a growing energy which bursts into a fuzzy blaze stocked with soaring harmonies and rousing funk ‘n’ roll revelry. The track relaxes back into that initial catchy canter again, all the while building its energies and tenacity to spring up again, a repeating cycle which has anticipating glowing with each round as eagerly as the band’s own to burst into boisterous action.
Weaving a tapestry of dirty grunge and emotive soul, flirtatious funk and fiery classic rock, to name some of its textures, Middle Of The Night is a spirit raising feel good stomp which might not be re-inventing the rock wheel but certainly provides a whole new colour to its invigorating roll.
Middle Of The Night is released April 8th @ https://sabatta.bandcamp.com/album/middle-of-the-night
