Owiny Sigoma Band new single and European dates

November 2, 2011

Released 5th December 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.
