The Winachi Tribe New single (Time for love) Dave Tolan remix, has a “Hanna barbera, cartoon, esq, 70s retro video released today exclusively with XS Noize. The single has been on fire reaching #55 in the national Itunes Dance Music charts, featured by Janice long on BBC radio and played in 40+ global radio shows from Los Angeles to Tokyo. Since its release last Friday its had stunning five start reviews and hit 3k streams on Spotify in just 48 hours.
Sort of sums up the music industry really! As soon as those Giorgio Moroder synths and Niles Rodgers guitars hit you, you know you’re in the grip of The Winachi Tribe. The funky beat and solid bassline, complete with synth stabs, underpin the intro until the main vocals hit you with Liam Croker’s trademark funky swagger.
Add to that some Donna Summer-esque backing vocals (a family affair with Liam’s cousin, Natalie O’Donovan) and you have the makings of a fine track. The track builds and has a fine brass sample towards the end, reminiscent of 70’s funk, whilst the female vocals become more of a banshee type sound toward the end (Nile Rodgers would be more than happy with the brilliant guitar solo), and we’re expected to show ‘devotion, as deep as the ocean’.
