SOS (Sons of Soul) has made the final 10 in the UK and Ireland St. Helier Urban Music Crown 2010!
The Urban Music Crown is an annual online award which is presented to the hottest unsigned act within the urban music genre. A statement from the boys read “We are very pleased to be in the final 10, which in itself, is recognition to what we have achieved so far this year”.
After an abundance of critical acclaim for their debut single “Candy Girl” SOS ( Sons of Soul ) are set to release their second single entitled ‘Express train’ in October 2010. For this single, SOS have joined forces to devastating effect with upcoming R & B production team 3mindz, who wrote and compose the track, taking the boys to a all new level with there highly distinctive beats and production style.
“Express Train” is an Epic sounding and melodic track with sinister hard edgy layered vocal snippets, all combined to create a slick, moody and atmospheric mid tempo R & B ballad; but with a cutting edge futuristic twist for 2010.
The boys management company Starvue Entertainment reveals that SOS third single “Our Love” will follow shortly thereafter.
“Our Love” captures the feeling of being in love with someone in a turbulent relationship and the grim possibility and prospects of hearing those dreaded words that it is all over. Although the song tackles a heart-rending subject lyrically, this single will take an upbeat and classic R & B approach, with a cool melodic flow, pulsing bass and impassioned vocal performance, making it an infectious track reminisce of classic 90’s R & B.
Presently the band is putting a lot of hard work in the studio on their debut album, due out next year and preparing for UK touring. The pending album according to the bands management will have some surprising production collaborations with some of the UK’s most promising young producers such as Reiss Nicholas from Heatwave Productions, 3mindz, Stomp Beats, The Fives and Current Music Group to name a few. Plenty more quality music to come from SOS, so watch this space…….
