The NY Duo Share a Project That hits all The Right Grooves
Formed by seasoned, NY songwriters Bel-Ami, Redddaz, Misha ‘Silky’ Savage, and Will Sacks – Herbivores are releasing some of the most lush, nuanced neo-soul to land here in the UK from across the pond.
Formed less than one year ago, they’re already making a name for themselves in the Brooklyn live music circuit. Their unique sound comes from the production majesty of Will Sacks ( LCD Soundsystem, Sofi Tukker, Animal Collective,) among others. They draw on elements of electronica, RnB and of course authentic soul to create their sound. The new EP showcases exactly what they’re about as musicians. The smooth, ultimately chilled vibe is consistent throughout. Speaking on the new project, they state:
Speaking about the inspiration behind their Herbivores EP, the collective say, “this project is inspired by where love begins and starts to blossom into something that could be amazing. The Herbivores sound reflects the stages of a romance as seasons of the year, and this EP – the first of two projects we are releasing this year , the second being ‘Nightshades’ for the autumn – represents the spring and summer months, with the record beginning with flirtatious blossoms and waning into an emotional first harvest.
The link between the seasons and the weather is just as strong as the link between seasons and us as creatives. Painters use certain colours to convey emotion in their paintings, and for us, these songs are our palette, with the EP serving as a small first part of a much larger mural that is Herbivores. These six songs are the tracks that we found most uplifting out of all the music we’ve been making recently, and the music has poured out of us so easily and so quickly, the inspiration really has been each other and our cumulative experience of learning to love in this great city of New York”.
