The TNM Spaceship is - despite corona - still on target: The bands 4th single this year is coming on April 24th and the vibes are groovy smooth! UNDERSTOOD combines Thundercat-ish funky basslines with tight Prince production. Edgy leadguitars take turns with stripped-down on point vocals. No fillers. Detailed percussion parts blend with fresh synth-chords. Hand-picked analog sources like the good old Fender Rhodes bring back the beautiful warmth we miss in the digital world.
The songs purpose is self-therapy. A conversation with oneself, where questions and doubts are answered by the own system for a better mental hygiene.
Soul? R’n’B? Neo-Crossover-Funk? Indie Electronic Soul-Funk?
What do I know. Best believe what drips lushly out of the speakers is hypnotic and soothing at once. Relax.
The Next Movement:
Character, authenticity and urgency – but above all: Groove.
The Next Movement, led by singer / drummer J.J. Flueck, joined by Pascal „P“ Kaeser on bass & synth and guitar-virtuoso Sam Siegenthaler have gone through it all. The three have worked together over a decade as in-demand musicians and rhythm section (Greis, Nicole Bernegger, William White, Steff la Cheffe, Soul Train, The James Brown Tribute Show, Manillio, Diens, Rogue State Alliance a.m.m.), being too busy to release their own music.
With the release of their soulful-feelgood summer (video-)single „Superfly“, the group started a highly productive era. One EP later, the 16 track Longplayer LOUD is released End of February 2018. The following Singles „Voodoo“, „Let It Go“ and „ I wanna see you move“ get tons of props on US-musicblog Earmilk.com and negative white. In Spring 2019 the trio follows up with the EP „No Sleep Till Paradiso“ and another tour. Adding up to over 70 shows and building a highly explosive live-show.
Explosive Groove-pop, with enough funky soul might be the most accurate description of their fairly unswiss sound creation. Comparisons to Anderson .Paak and references to Prince show up on a regular. Call it what you want; their music is very meaningful and grooves hard. Live delivery is a given and known to most promoters after literally thousands of shows with various artists and projects throughout Switzerland and abroad.
