The debut single from Perth trio Gamba overflows with influences and ideas, creating a warm and unique musical tapestry. The outfit describe themselves as “heavy folk” with a penchant for “haunting harmonies and tasty arrangements.” ‘Leave The Boy Behind’ clearly demonstrates these descriptions, while simultaneously adding to them – the track utilises elements of soul, pop, funk and R’n’B allowing for a tonally rich and diverse musical palette. A somewhat surprising guitar solo and layered vocal harmonies serve as pleasant surprises, and the infectious melody is sure to play on in your mind long after the song has concluded.
‘Leave The Boy Behind’ was recorded with acclaimed producer Matt Gio, and it serves as the first tantalising taste of their upcoming debut EP. A gorgeous track from a very promising young group of artists who are sure to make waves with their unique brand of soulful, melodic guitar based music in the near future.
