Cool, calm & connected is the best way to describe these smooth coastal groovers. Their unique blend of roots-dub-reggae is fresh, dreamy and full of colour. It’s like a well-rounded, slow cooked roast – tasteful tender melodies, crispy skinned bass lines, covered in smooth as gravy 3-part vocal harmonies…a recipe fit for a king!
‘MUFASSA & The Pride’ have had a monster 2019, releasing ‘A SONG A MONTH’ throughout Feb-May, with ‘FOLLOW ME’, the title track of the band’s debut EP reaching No.5 on the Amrap Regional Charts!
‘FOLLOW ME’ (feat. Jess Lean) delivers a raw, honest story of soul searching & reaching out for love and support through some of life’s toughest times…and we’ve all had a few!
This latest release follows on from the band’s debut single’s ‘BLUE SKY’ & ‘ALL RIGHT’ which both gained the national airplay and took the group across the country.
‘ALL RIGHT’ begins by the beach, watching the sun set on another beautiful day in this golden land we call home, Australia. Then, it takes you on a sonically relaxed journey, while paying respect the one, the only, the almighty – MUSIC – and the unique ability it has in bringing people together!
‘BLUE SKY,’ the lead single off their highly anticipate debut EP, captures life by the ocean, where the sun, surf and sand play an integral part towards one’s wellbeing. With its 60’s/70’s surf guitar tones you suddenly feel you’re riding the waves of Endless Summer, leaving all your expectations by the door and simply living each moment for what it’s worth. ‘MUFASSA & The Pride’ stamp their unique coastal dub reggae sounds throughout this track, led by front man Dale Mallett’s (aka MUFASSA) strong yet dreamy vocals.
“With sweet surfer reggae riffs, teamed with lyrics that lure you to your happy place, Blue Sky is the perfect tune to slide into your Spring/Summer soundtrack” – Nikki G, Noosa FM
Recorded with Brian Goodworth (BMusic) at Big Rock Studio’s, situated at the base of Mt Coolum on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, the ‘FOLLOW ME’ EP tells a story of life on the Sunshine Coast, from the beaches to the bush, full of flavour.
MUFASSA has collaborated with producer ‘Rowie’ (Bearfoot, The Floating Bridges, Parker St Dub Club) on this EP, exploring deep sonic textures, taking listeners on a wave of emotion from start to finish.
‘MUFASSA & The Pride’ will be on their National ‘EP Tour’ throughout 2019 with shows in QLD, NSW, VIC & WA.
“Blessed by the ocean, fly through the trees, do what makes you happy, follow your dreams.” – MUFASSA, 2017.
