Brand new video of the lead single from Nubiyan Twist 'Siren Song' , due for release 27.5.16 on Wormfood Records.

Nubiyan Twist’s brand new track 'Headhunter' is a celebratory blend of ska-flavored jazz melodies, Afro-beats, and bright, jazzy horns. One of the tracks from their much-anticipated EP ‘Siren Song’, 'Headhunter' packs a heavy punch of eclectic dub-fusion that's layered with neo-soul and latin instrumentation. “Nubiya takes inspiration from Nat King Cole and gives a nod to Wendy Rene’s ‘After Laughter’ in her writing. A less common addition to a Ska track is Latin percussion, with multiple layers of congas, güiro, triangle and agogo bells throughout. The horn section is also a step away from traditional ska, taking influence from Afro-beat and modern Jazz," say the band.....

London label Wormfood is proud to present the second full release from 12 piece afro/soul/jazz sensation Nubiyan Twist. Drawing on afrobeat, ska, jazz, soul and hiphop, it's a superbly refined and mature series of compositions that will cement their position as the UK's leading afrobeat/soul/jazz fusion act.
Much-loved for their trademark big band blend of afrobeat, soul, jazz, dub, hip hop and Latin influences, Nubiyan Twist follow up their critically acclaimed 2015 debut album with their much-awaited second full release, keeping their trademark power while showcasing the more delicate, jazzy elements of their sound.

Their March 2015 debut album received huge support online, digitally and on radio, being championed by Huey Morgan, Craig Charles and David Rodigan and receiving 4* and 5* reviews in the national press as well as specialist world, jazz soul and hiphop channels.

This second full release is a refined, mature series of compositions, showcasing the different elements of their sound. The eponymous debut song, ‘Siren Song’, shows off their huge horn arrangements, fusing their trademark afrobeat sound with hugely confident, captivating vocal delivery from lead singer Nubiya Brandon (who also features with The Hempolics), along with the powerful sax solo work of Denis Scully.

‘Headhunter’ is a gutsy, feelgood summertime anthem, with a catchy vocal, big band sound and monstrous trombone solo from Josh Podbury, showing exactly why they have developed such a powerful reputation for live performance, smashing festival main stages across the UK and Europe.
