47 Soul: Sheffield Album Launch
Enthralling and electrifying, 47Soul combines traditional Palestinian street music with bass-heavy dance beats, analogue synthesisers and hypnotic guitar lines. Their lyrics, delivered in tripped-out verses by the four members in a mixture of Arabic and English, embody a captivating celebration of movement and an irrefutable call for freedom.
Their new album, ‘Balfron Promise’, emerges as a product of the band’s three year residency in London, a profoundly unique experience for the four members and their music. The album’s themes are inspired by both modern-day London and the 100 year-old politics still influencing 47Soul’s story to this day. Socially topical and lyrically astute, Balfron Promise holds one promise, that their future will be written by no one but themselves.
