Music: 30/70 – Fluid Motion

Incredible Melbourne-based band 30/70 come through with their highly anticipated new album titled Fluid Motion. The whole Melbourne soul and jazz scene is incredible, having witnessed Mandarin Dreams back in August. This new project is soulful and incredibly textured, with keys and synths that ooze soul and sublime beauty.

The drumming on “Brunswick Hustle” from Ziggy Zeitgeist hits so hard, with the groovy basslines from Horatio Luna bringing the funk. “Addicted” is one of my favourite tracks on the album, as Allysha Joy’s vocals bring soul and ethereal energy. It’s got an infectious groove, just as with “Tempted” and “Impermanence.” The funk transcends on this album. It’s a truly hypnotic release, with incredible horns, strings and keys elevating these tracks to such a high level. I’m floored. Tracks like “Reprise” are gorgeous with a thumping beat, gorgeous trumpet and stunning percussion throughout. The basslines and Rhodes throughout are stunning. The beat on “Backfoot” remains one of the strongest on the whole album, while “Flowers” is this smooth, incredibly dense and angelic way to end the album. Overall, this album is everything I had hoped it would be. Soulful, incredibly funky and textured. The ethereal vocals and instrumentals throughout make this contender for one of my favourite albums of this year, and I couldn’t be happier!
