Music

‘Tales of a Londoner’ is the 3rd Studio Album from Chainska Brassika, written during the COVID-19 lockdown of 2020 when the band faced the challenge of writing in isolation and creating music virtually.

“They’re a brilliant band – you want to see them live. They’re incredible!” David Rodigan – BBC1Xtra “The World Reggae Contest champions are at the forefront of the UK’s new Ska movement and have a distinctive vibrance in their sound that combines sweet melodic vocals, rough lyrics with high energy ska rhythms and reggae passages soaked in magnificent brass lines.” Louder Than War

Chainska Brassika return from lockdown armed with their first single ‘Down the Barge’ from their forthcoming album ‘Tales of a Londoner’, recorded, produced, and mixed by Grippa Laybourne from the infamous Hempolics, and mastered in Canada by Jesse King aka Dubmatix.

‘Down the Barge’ depicts a proper day out with the lads in London, where going down the pub is a way of life – London wouldn’t be complete without a pub! The original social centres of the capital are famous the world over and sometimes all a Londoner needs is to drown the week’s sorrows with a trip down the local boozer. This rocking, upbeat single from the band is a homage to their favourite “local” and tells the story of a young man’s day and journey to that final destination.

“Come on son, we’re going down the Barge!”

“The World Reggae Contest champions are at the forefront of the UK’s new Ska movement and have a distinctive vibrance in their sound that combines sweet melodic vocals, rough lyrics with high energy ska rhythms and reggae passages soaked in magnificent brass lines.”

‘Wolf And Nina’ features BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year Deschanel Gordon and multi-genre cellist/vocalist Midori Jaeger. “I wrote this about the reassurance you get from having non-human companions in situations of stress. In this case my cats in the pandemic; their blissful ignorance to whatever’s going on in the human world, and their lack of change in behaviour being a comfort”. With Midori’s lyrics touching on the strains of relationships, ‘Wolf And Nina’ goes beyond the boundaries of jazz within folk-tinged song writing and ethereal atmospheres.
