Owiny Sigoma Band – ‘Here On The Line’ + Remix *OUT NOW*

December 7, 2011

Penned by guitarist and singer-songwriter Sam Lewis, ‘Here On The Line’ is the second single to be taken from the band’s critically acclaimed debut album: ‘Owiny Sigoma Band’. In contrast to the hypnotic nyatiti melodies, chattering percussion and propulsive low end that has charmed listeners so far, ‘Here On The Line’ floats gently on a bed of acoustic guitar melded with lilting nyatiti licks, Charles’ meandering drums and Sam’s earnest vocal. It’s a perfect example of the Luo/London soundclash that made this album so unique and hooked in fans such as Nick Grimshaw and Huw Stephens at BBC Radio 1; XFM’s Jon Kennedy; and Cerys Matthews, Huey Morgan and Tom Ravenscroft over at BBC 6Music. Also included here is Tom Skinner’s scratchy Stalker Dub which strips back the layers to a base of raw, lurching drums and sub bass, blessed with snatches of Sam’s heavily dubbed vocals and warm guitar.

You can buy the release from the Brownswood Online StoreiTunes and Amazon
