ONLY TAKES A DAY — Reach

The London-based folk/hip hop duo ONLY TAKES A DAY [Fab & Shaan] whose influences range from Bob Dylan to J Dilla, deliver a sound that has been described as a more melodic version of Scroobius Pip. Now they have released a new video for “Reach” — a piece that explores the many falsehoods and contradictions of modern day life..

ONLY TAKES A DAY – Sardonic wit and an impeccable & rhythmic cadence…

We had a listen:

The rhythms, characterized by a rattle of chains and cages, tends to conceal and skillfully imprison the rap.

And that voice has sardonic wit and an impeccable and rhythmic cadence. This is a brave song, an ingenious and inciting number. And it’s surprisingly cheerful given the subject matter…

See them play at Wonder Fields Festival, 29th June-1st July, Great Fulford, Nr. Exeter, Devon
