All The People
"and this here - mood, lyricism and uplifting melody - is exactly what
youth culture and desensitized music listeners need to hear more of."
"a little bit of light in the dark , with iridescent synths bubbling up
under Dennie's heart-to-heart vocals , making it a slug of melancholy
Hailing from South London , All The People are an electro soul 3 piece
comprising of brothers Ashley & Simon Arnold and singer Curtis Dennie.
Simon & Ash cut their teeth in punk bands before graduating to become drum & bass producers and artists The Burbs on the highly lauded Hospital Records and sometime Dj's on Radio 1 / 1xtra drum & bass show.
All The People's sound has elements of that same blistering euphoria and ranges from raw and compelling to understated and soulful. Curtis's intuitive yet emotive vocal tone gives the sensitive song writing the delivery it deserves.
The band pride themselves on having a recorded sound and live show that reflects their creative & experimental approach to song structures and soundscapes. Musically they are already being favourably compared to artists ranging from SBTRKT, Sampha, Blood Orange & Jungle to classic trip hop /soul acts such as Bonobo and Massive Attack. Their unique sound reflects a plethora of influences from RnB and 90's soul to jazz & alternative electronic music .
After a successful summer which included a wondrous set at Bestival in 2015 , their last 2 singles have already garnered support and radio play on Gilles Peterson, Mistajam, Phil Taggart, Goldirocks, Huey Morgan, BBC Introducing ( as well as Amazing Radio and Reprezent) and great reviews on blogs including Dummy, Clash, Complex, Earmilk, Most Radicalist. They are currently finishing their debut album and have some live dates lined up for London in March, April & May and festivals including The Secret Garden Party in July . With a new single due out soon, the next few months look to be an exciting time for the band.
