If Reggae isn’t one of the main features of your summertime playlists, then you’re pretty much doing it all wrong. The Wise Bloods have just dropped their latest single Never Given it Away just in time for all the lucky Reggae fans that like to soak up a little Soul with their Summer anthems.
Never Given it Away is a blinding cross over between Reggae and Hip Hop, it packs quite the punch with the roots and rhythm which is served up by the bouncing high-vibe beat which is driven by the instrumental licks of the guitar and bass which set up the perfect Reggae Ska style melody. If the aural alchemy on the track doesn’t move you, then the lyrics definitely will.
Despite the Wise Bloods never giving it away, they were kind enough to let you listen to their latest single for free on Soundcloud along with the rest of their 2018 EP ‘Emergence’.
