We are back with the weekly wax. A track that is currently doing the rounds. Whether it is working dance floors, after parties or the festival circuit we guarantee a waxer. From re-found gems to just-released floor fillers this is our weekly wax. Up next is Crazy P as we select their full album.
Following 30 million streams for their previous album. Sold-out headline gigs in Manchester and Percolate in London. As well as supporting the likes of Chic and Chaka Khan with regular shows for Bluedot, Festival No. 6, Love International. The Nottingham/Manchester band are more in demand than ever.
‘Age Of The Ego’ is their eighth album and for us may be their best yet. It was released as a way of expressing their feelings of the state of the world. The band which consists of Danielle Moore, Chris Todd, Jim Baron, Tim Davies and Matt Klose is a collection of work addressing politics and social media.
Discussing the themes, singer and songwriter Danielle Moore says, “I don’t usually write my lyrics in advance. Normally I feel they’re expressed better in tandem with the music, which seems to help tap into my subconscious. What came out on several tracks was Brexit, the state of UK politics and the way I feel about divisive, abhorrent manipulation by certain media outlets.
Thematically parts of the album were also influenced by the rise of social media, the struggling education system and how it’s failing our young, and the impact all this has on us. It’s been hard to not be emotionally influenced by the situation we find ourselves in; not just in this country, but worldwide.
I feel very angry and frustrated, but sometimes have to laugh at myself, because I struggle to articulate my feelings in normal conversation. I suppose lyrically it is political, a reflection of the times, but with a twist of humour and always a lot of love.”
