Jazz has never been the most accessible of genres, yet, the Good Manners deftly incorporated the archaic funk-dripping allure into their debut single “Walk or Talk” as though it was the most natural contemporary composition possible.
The London-based duo is perceptibly motivated by their passion of spreading the good vibes through their groove deep soundscapes which don’t offer pretentious Jazz ensembles, instead, Walk or Talk offers a real human connection through the soulfully reverberant vocals. Combine that with a bassline which is as infectious as what you’d hear in any iconic Soul Jazz Pop track, and you’ve got an absolute hit with the Good Manners single.
If any track deserves to be considered a summer playlist essential, it’s Walk or Talk.
