Nubiyan Twist revisits History in "Tittle Tattle" music video

By Published October 02, 2020

The new vengeful and farcical video “Tittle Tattle” provides a baroque sample of their third album Freedom Fables scheduled for next February.

The young English collective from Leeds is shaking up the codes of contemporary jazz through a mix of soul, jazz and afro-groove, with the addition of talented artists on their next album Freedom Fables. This musical melting pot showcases the talented Anglo-Nigerian Ego Ella May, who recently appeared on COLORSXSTUDIOS , and Ghanaian highlife legend Pat Thomas. 

In the visual for the first single from the album, soul singer Cherise Adams-Burnett once again joins the group, but this time to dethrone the master of an English country manor and take her revenge on History. It’s a fittingly comic piece worthy of a farce by Molière or Shakespeare. Here, Nubiyan Twist’s mix of eras and musical genres is not lacking in swing, with the group renewing jazz standards via neo-soul voices and Afro sounds that are perfect for the dancefloor. It’s not hard to understand the infatuation that has remained intact since the beginning for this underground clubs of Leeds, embodying the bubbling up of a music that still persists in some clubs in the English capital. 

Freedom Fables will be released on February 5, 2021 via  Strut Records
