‘Gentle R&B crooning and some mind-expanding synths.’ COMPLEX
‘Imagine a more soulful Disclosure, or perhaps Hot Chip if they’d spent more time at FWD – sluicing together club sounds and pop nous, we simply can’t get enough of All The People.’ CLASH
‘A little bit of light in the dark, with iridescent synths bubbling up under Dennie’s heart-to-heart vocals, making it a slug of melancholy soul. ‘ DUMMY
‘And this here – mood, lyricism and uplifting melody -is exactly what youth culture and desensitized music listeners need to hear more of.’ EARMILK
Hailing from South London, All The People are a 3-piece comprising of DJ brothers Ashley & Simon (The Burbs, Hospital records) and singer Curtis who have just revealed their new single ‘Beach Club’ taken from their forthcoming debut album ‘R Together’ due for release March 2017.
All The People describe their sound as ‘electronic soul with bad ass drums & plenty of sub bass’ and their new track ‘Beach Club’ is an understated soulful paean to lost halcyon summers. ‘It’s reminiscent of memories of our childhood summers spent in caravan parks on the south coast where the actual beach club we refer to still stands. It actually started life as pure house track and then we played around with harmonies & took inspiration lyrically from ‘The Prophet’ by Kahlil Gabrain shaping it into a slightly melancholy, nostalgic song’
The video for ‘Beach Club’ was shot on a windy beach in Southend and features a live performance on the beach from ‘All The People’. The band wanted to capture the melancholic tone of ‘Beach Club’- which is a reflection on lost halycon summers, loss & memory, our childhood which are themes that run throughout the video.
