What You Need To Know:
Riding on the heels of the momentum gained from the full-length album, Gone Fishin’, Judah Band is here for more with their new single, “Believe."
What it Sounds Like:
Always the musical risk-takers, “Believe” is along the lines of the 70's and 80’s R&B bands with a millennial swagger of sorts. Randy Weston is the quintessential showman/band leader full of rhythmic singing channeling a “goulash” of greats such as James Brown, Bootsy Collins, Otis Redding, Joe Ligon and a slight hint of Bruno Mars. The synth and horns intertwine so well with the others that the song would be incomplete if any were missing. The syncopated, boom-bap breakdown gives way for the churchy tag, laced with a bass groove that is sure to give musicians and music lovers that signature “stank face.”
Although it is clearly a fun and musical playground, the message of “Believe” is assurance and full of faith. “I believe everything You said about me/I believe everything will come to pass.”
For Fans Of:
Redhands, Sensere and Tye Tribbett
“Believe” will shock some at first, but the message will shine through the shock. Musicians will gravitate towards it and I cannot wait to hear this live. Judah Band is going to have fun with this and it could easily turn a four and a half minute performance into a 20-minute jam session.
