All The People
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 & 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, Hot Chip, Little Dragon, Blood Orange & Caribou 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.
A successful 2016 included a wondrous set at Secret Garden Party and most recently some storming live performances supporting the Dub Pistols at the 02 Islingto & Digable Planets at Under The Bridge in December London at Dalston's Birthdays, 100 Club, The Lock Tavern Camden, Old Blue Last & The Social. Their current single 'The Hills (Promises)' is released on 10th Feb and already getting played by Pete Tong at BBC Radio 1 with last 2 singles receiving support and radio play on Gilles Peterson, Mistajam, Phil Taggart, Goldirocks, Huey Morgan, BBC Introducing (as well as Amazing Radio, Soho Radio and Reprezent) and impressive reviews on blogs inc. Dummy, Clash, Complex, Earmilk, Most Radicalist. With a new single and debut album coming in May, the next few months look to be an exciting time for the band.
"Imagine a more soulful Disclosure or perhaps Hot Chip if they'd spent more time at FWD - sluicing together club sounds and pop nous, we simply can't get enough of All The People" - CLASH
"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 soul." - DUMMY
"And this here - mood, lyricism and uplifting melody -is exactly what youth culture and desensitized music listeners need to hear more of." - EARMILK
"All The People have already gone on quite a journey to become the peddlers of luxurious electronics we know today....melodic & understated soul a promising hint of what the album has in store." - COMPLEX
