Lights in the darkness from Feed The Wolf and The Winachi Tribe

Very different in flavour and sound but both a rousing pleasure in these dark times we have a couple of singles you should be checking out; the offerings of Feed The Wolf and The Winachi Tribe two pleasure sparking distractions.

It may be only one song but there is no escaping the intimation that there is a touch of fun and mischief to the Feed The Wolf sound. As debut single Intrusion reveals, there is also a creative prowess and rock ‘n’ roll instinct to its dextrous tempting which has quickly inspired the want to keep a keen eye on the UK outfit ahead.

Formed by vocalist Marina and guitarist James, London based Feed the Wolf emerged in 2018 and has gone through an exploration of sound and changes of band members before arriving at the creative voice and line-up behind Intrusion. Their sound is tagged as dirty rock ‘n’ roll but with its potent blues inspired groove and punk rock edge, going by the first single, it is a richly flavoured proposition already nurturing its own identity.

With Theo on bass and drummer Steve completing the line-up, the band instantly hit ears with an appetite entwining groove; its virulent infection an inescapable hook to which rhythms add their thick bait as the enjoyably wild child vocals of Marina bring that great punkish devilry.

Theo’s bass delivers a delicious dark grumble to the song, especially providing a devilish lure as Marina’s voice embraces a relative calm deep into the magnetic encounter as all the while that bluesy groove  tightened its grip on eager attention.

It is indeed only one track but more than enough to spark real anticipation for what comes next.

The Winachi Tribe are no strangers to the site, a pleasure bringing presence which will only continue with more releases like Funky But Chic.

The song has been released in collaboration with iconic Italian fashion brand Pantofola d’Oro and the release of the Pantofola d’Oro – Winachi Collection Trainers. It is a fresh slice of the band’s inimitable electro funk bred sound and a track which will certainly give the shoes a boisterous workout on the dance-floor.

The Warrington hailing quintet of Liam Croker, Antony Egerton, Inder Goldfinger, Richie Rich, Jamie Mcgregor, and Mr Whommit  instantly gripped the body with the song’s animated funk, its energy controlled but inescapable as vocals charmed ears within the just as lively embrace of keys and guitars. With rhythms an even more boisterous manipulation, the song swiftly had us swerving to its swing and roaring with a chorus which is as virulent as the current invader upon the world.

With drama lining its twists and turns as temptation oozes, the song is Winachi Tribe irresistibility at its prime, a song to give your bodies and spirit an exuberant workout in this time of self isolation.

Both Intrusion and Funky But Chic are out now.

The Winachi Tribe VS Sense Of Danger

Print_RingMaster Review

With feet and hips, not forgetting imagination, still sweaty from the rousing temptation of last year’s impressive single Time For Love, the increasingly addictive charm and invention of The Winachi Tribe has set out to work them up all over again with its successor Sense Of Danger. The band’s new single is a magnetic and almost imposingly infectious shuffle of pulsating electronics and skittish rhythms woven into a tapestry of evocative vocals and flirtatious melodies; a proposal which simply confirms The Winachi Tribe as one of Britain’s most mesmeric contagions.

Emerging last year out of Northern D.Funk collective China White, the Warrington/Leeds based band create a funk fuelled, soul bred, dance party which has quickly drawn references to the likes of George Clinton, Massive Attack, and The Happy Mondays, they amongst inspirations to the band which equally include Sly & The Family Stone, Primal Scream, Ian Brown, and The Rolling Stones. As Time For Love and its companion Plant The Seed eagerly showed as the band’s first single, even with those spices The Winachi Tribe only uncages unique proposals and infections of sound which gets right under the skin and into every corner of the body; a quality vocalist Liam Croker, guitarist Jamie McGregor, bassist Richie Rich, keyboardist Antony Egerton, drummer Sam Tushingham, and percussionist Inder Goldfinger have escalated for Sense Of Danger.

The song opens with the raspy but inviting tones of Croker, their echo warming the way for the pulsating rhythms and electronic radiance which swiftly link their hypnotic motion with the obeying reactions of the listener. Within a few breaths the track is in control of body and thoughts, its flirtatious movement and rhythmic dexterity colluding with the atmospheric and provocative textures of keys, guitar, and voice. At certain moments it is a Tom Tom Club meets Thompson Twins incitement and in other times leaning towards a darker The Happy Mondays/Talking Heads hue but all the time an irresistible lure impossible to resist.

Accompanying the track is I Sense Danger (Everybody’s Got Their Price – Remix); a more energetic and flirtatious take on the lead song replacing the it’s shadows with livelier shards of electronic tempting and energetic tenacity. Its predecessor was a magnetic saunter, a seductive crawl through ears whereas the second song blossoms into a boisterous canter with matching elegance and compelling revelry for similar responses.

Both tracks feed body and soul, and each suggest they are just the next step in the inevitable ascent of The Winachi Tribe into one of the UK’s most greedily devoured bands.

Sense Of Danger is out now digitally on iTunes with a Ltd Edition Hard Copy also available.

The Winachi Tribe – Time For Love

Picture 7_RingMaster Review

Fancy giving feet and hips a healthy work out? Then take Time For Love, the new single from The Winachi Tribe, out for a ride. Consisting of two electro funk bred shuffles as soulful as they are blessed with a varied weave of additional flavours, the band’s debut release is the perfect incitement for those with the need to dance in their heart.

The Warrington / Leeds based funk driven collective emerged earlier this year out of Northern D.Funk collective China White, entangling inspirations from the likes of Sly & The Family Stone, Happy Mondays, Black Grape, Primal Scream, Massive Attack, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, and Ian Brown into their own diverse and fresh sounds. As young a band as it is, experiences across its members are deep, collaborations and tours with a range of artists from Alabama 3 and Keith Allen to The Furious Five included on the overall CV whilst percussionist Inder Goldfinger alone has been a member of Ian Brown’s band for thirteen years. With a line-up completed by vocalist Liam Croker, guitarist Jamie Mcgregor, bassist Richie Rich, keyboardist Antony Egerton, and drummer Sam Tushingham, The Winachi Tribe have hit the ground running with their first release, unleashing a soulfully infectious party at the same time.

Time For Love opens with inviting beats and a guitar jangle reminiscent of Talking Heads; The Tom Tom Club further coming to mind as percussion and vocals breathe their lively enticing into the expanding swing and flirtation of the song. A dark and pulsating bassline only adds to the draw whilst developing guitar enterprise and the ever captivating rhythms make a puppeteer to feet and body movement. The song saunters along with eighties/nineties funk revelry, the flames of horn provided by Tim Hutton alongside warm harmonies and the enticing lead vocals of Croker, further lighting up the song’s bustling scenery. With everything combined, Time For Love is a magnetism of nostalgia and originality. Manna for those with a passion of funk ‘n’ soul and pleasing temptation for those maybe less inclined to swing a hip or two.

Second song Plant The Seed, instantly offers a darker atmosphere and tone, but again with a virulence which only spreads the catchiness oozing from its second breath. Vocally Croker is soon mixing up his delivery too, enticing raps and mellow smouldering escaping his throat to match the similarly lively and varied sounds hugging his every word. As with its predecessor, a hint of Heaven 17 and additionally here Rip Rig & Panic plays with thoughts, especially around the great and thick temptation of female vocals. Emerging for personal tastes our favourite of the equally fine pair, the track reveals more of the depth and imagination within The Winachi Tribe songwriting and sound.

Completed by the Love Maze 4DD remix of Time For Love, the single is a masterful persuasion for ears and body, and an introduction to take even those of us generally lacking the keenest appetite for its style of music on a highly satisfying and eager adventure.

Time For Love is available via A1M Records from July 20th
