Hero Records presents the debut album from Weekend Sun ‘Forever Tomorrow’ (HR013CD)
After the well-received limited 7” vinyl releases ‘Figo’ b/w ‘Keep Running’ and ‘You’re Good To Me’ b/w ‘Her Name Escapes Me’ Weekend Sun are back with their debut album of soul, funk, jazz, hip hop and reggae-flavours entitled ‘Forever Tomorow’.
Influenced by sample-heavy 90s hip hop, with its rule-breaking blend of 60s Soul and Funk and old danceable jazz, Weekend Sun blend old and new. Some double bass and laptop beats, meet North East England’s finest musicians whose influences vary wildly: from early Duke Ellington and New Orleans jazz through to The Incredible Bongo Band, Be–Bop and A Tribe Called Quest.
‘Forever Tomorrow’ is a true melting pot of styles from the uptempo funk of ‘Come With Me’ and ‘You’re Good To Me’ to the disco grooves of ‘Feeling Inside’, the hip hop beats of ‘Not My Problem’ to the dub flavours of ‘Talk About It’ ; the Motown stomp of ‘Moody Old Man’ to the downtempo acoustic sounds of ‘St. Vincent Blues’. Perfect for people who like to get down and groove as well as those who like to lie down and listen ‘Forever Tomorrow’ is the stunning debut from Weekend Sun to be played at the weekend in the sun (as well as during the week in the rain!).
