Mike Lenson Band orchestrated a fierce attack on fake news with their vibrantly absorbing latest single “Gimmie Something Real”.
The powerhouse UK-based quartet allowed the track to offer plenty of funk and groove through their unique genre-crumbling which puts Soul, Jazz and Blues in the same high-octane melting pot.
With organ wails and trombone solos adding plenty of fire to the eclectic instrumental arrangement, the progressions of Gimmie Something Real will leave you even more immersed with every unpredictable turn.
It may not be your usual serving of Soul, but the frustration directed towards the state of our post-truth world is sure to offer plenty of catharsis for anyone who feels the same.
You can stream and download Gimmie Something Real for yourselves via Bandcamp.
