Sorceress brings us soul with a touch of modern funk from across the world. The group is a five-piece band from New Zealand whose their sophomore album, DOSE, drops in May. According to the band:
"The creative duo at the core of Sorceress is producer/band leader Isaac Aesili and vocalist Rachel Fraser. Isaac Aesili's production provides a diverse and sonically rich soundscape from which the charismatic vocals of Rachel Fraser weave through both light and dark lyrical themes.
DOSE retains their distinctive sonic texture, but also projects more movement while going deeper into the source of the music. Experienced in headphones or a club/festival context, Sorceress traverses the boundaries between audio intimacy and the bass driven rhythms of the dancefloor."
"Teacups" is the first serving of DOSE. With vocals that may remind folks of the 90's soul sounds coming out of the UK (think Brand New Heavies) and production that blends the subtleties of J Dilla with the richness of a live outfit, "Teacups" delivers.
You can pre-order DOSE on Bandcamp today.
