Morcheeba have already seen a positive response to their new album – the first with new singer Daisy Martey - and a recent UK tour, which included two sold out dates at Shepherds Bush Empire. The next UK date for the band will be at the National Trust’s Summer Music Festival taking place at Surrey’s Claremont Landscape Gardens on Sunday July 24 th. The band have also been added to the bill of the Jazz Caf Picnic at Marble Hill in Twickenham on August 14, which will be the band’s last UK show for the rest of 2005.
THE ANTIDOTE is the sound of a band challenging and reinventing themselves embracing a whole raft of different influences and being far more adventurous than ever before. The record is more upbeat and raises the tempo to match the rough, edgy vocals that Daisy brings to the mix. The results are undeniably stamped with Morcheeba’s trademark mix of soul, funk and hip-hop, but now further coloured by a brazen acknowledgement of the band’s personal listening tastes.
THE ANTIDOTE is further proof that MORCHEEBA have the remedy.
