Lawrence Preston already feels like it should be a name in the music world that everyone knows as well as Marvin Gaye and or Curtis Mayfield. Lawrence’s new single ‘Something For You’ has the style of a soul classic, the hook any good song needs and showcases Lawrence’s musical prowess all without having to try!
Right from the start of the track you get that ‘UMPH’, a wave of glorious funk, makes you nod your head, as if you are driving down the freeway with the roof down, wearing your ray-bans… Barry white eat your heart out. Whilst it feels like a soul Classic, the underlying electronic drum sounds also give it a fresh, modern hip-hop twist.
Its plain to see what a talent Lawrence Preston is, someone who has homed their craft with magnificent attention to detail. He deserves your time.
Watch the video for ‘Something For You’ below!
Mavis Victory project is made up of four brothers and a childhood friend, the band’s unconventional line-up is the perfect match to their equally mould-breaking sound. Formed by the Ransom brothers – singer Michael, Phil on rhythm guitar, Ollie on bass, Chris on drums and Robert Rosser on guitar and keyboard – the whole collective is self-taught
Oozing seedy electronic loops and with echoing, swooping vocals, their sound is all dangerous street corners; distant sirens and the creeping underworld. Appropriately, their video is just as unhinged, inviting you into their world.
With influences including Arctic Monkeys; Kanye West and ScHoolboy Q, Mavis Victory Project is the musical equivalent of joining a cult – once you’re in, you wonder how you ever managed without. The video to “Don’t Go Away” is due for release on September 22nd and is just as arresting as their sound; with girls, gangs and clandestine weirdery likely to eat away at the inside of your head in a way you won’t be able to resist.
