The Black Seeds have today released their new album, ‘Fabric‘ via Remote Control.
The band’s sixth studio album comes just a year shy of their 20th anniversary as a band.
This year, the South Pacific reggae-soul outfit have shared the length and breadth of their luscious and diverse new album – including the anthemic summer tune ‘Better Days‘ the dance heavy ‘Freakin‘ and their latest single ‘Back To You.’ Created with the support of NZ On Air and recorded at Lee Prebble’s Wellington studio The Surgery, ‘Fabric‘ is a twelve-track album of bold, groove-heavy tunes that perfectly captures The Black Seeds’ characteristic brand of reggae-funk fusion.
Musically, there is a grand expansiveness that sets over the collective of tracks on ‘Fabric‘, allowing for each song to breathe and exist on its own, but also comfortably within the context of the wider picture. In other words, it is a prolific and multi-faceted mix of moods, feelings and stylistic influences, all brought together by the core reggae sound of The Black Seeds.
Perfect for the impending warmer weather. Give it a spin below.
In case you missed it, watch the music video for the band’s earlier single ‘Freakin‘ below, put together by Mark Russell & Owen Watts.
