There’s no telling what you’ll see when you press “Play” on the long-awaited new EP from genre-smashing groove masters Soulive, but these five dynamic new tunes are guaranteed to turn the backs of your eyelids into a vibrant, action-packed movie screen. With Cinematics Vol. 1, the band transforms their infectious blend of soul-jazz, hip-hop, R&B, funk and rock into a series of soundtracks for the movies of your mind. Better yet, this initial volume is the first in a planned series of Cinematics EPs.
With six long years having passed since the last time the three members of Soulive entered a studio together, fans will no doubt be excited to learn that there’s plenty of new music expected from guitarist Eric Krasno, drummer Alan Evans and keyboardist Neal Evans for the foreseeable future.
