Smoove & Turrell annouce new album with track 'Fade Away'

'Stratos Bleu' now available to pre-order

Fade Away’ is an addictive concoction of spacey electronic jazz funk from the hardest working Geordie’s outside of Ant and Dec...Yes it’s those loveable scamps Smoove & Turrell.  
Taken from their forthcoming album ‘Stratos Bleu’ the track features liberal doses of eerie sound design and electronic flourishes from their ever-present keys man -  Mike Porter’s synth collection,  next to tasteful guitar elements, an energetic bass line, and infectious grooving beats.

2020 sees the release of their 6th studio album Stratos Bleu – a slightly different direction for the boys as they take influences from their infamous DJ sets where they fuse northern soul with funk and electronica.  The production is a marriage of everything that they grew up on fused with elements of modern music, taking influences from Chicago House to Massive Attack, Inner City to Kruder & Dorfmeister but with the distinctive drum heavy dancefloor production Smoove is famous for.

Front man - John Turrell’s vocal tones are as soulful and sweet and as they’ve ever been, hitting you right in the feels with the ghostly chorus refrain  proving to be as memorable as any they’ve written. But whilst it bears a lot of the hallmarks of classic Smoove & Turrell material it’s definitely evidence of their sound evolving further into uncharted waters, with considerably more electronic dance based influences, and the full talents of their band getting in on the writing process.
It’s yet another cracker from these guys and an exciting taste of more to come the album so don’t delay and get your ears around it!
