What an album to take us into Friday and the weekend, get your dancing shoes on, slip into your glad rags, fire up the scooter and hit the town. The weekend is here
I first heard "Button Up" on the Glory Boy Radio show a few weeks ago and immediately fell in love with their mixture of Northern Soul, Mod and Hammond beats, the 4/4 beat gets me every time, you can't help but tap your feet to the music and more often than not you end up dancing........with a great big smile on your face too!
Button Up new 10 track album “Modena” is out now and released on button up RECORDS. The musical theme comes from the title and includes the musical styles of Northern Soul, Ska and the Hammond Mod sound all blended together. Modena contains 5 tracks with vocal and 5 tracks intrumental, written by founding member and bass player Garry John Kane. The oustanding vocal talent of Sara Kerr leads on 4 up-tempo northern soul style tracks including the successful single/video from the album “Listen To Your Heart (Beat)”. Mark Hannaway displays a Joe Strummer/Terry Hall vocal style on the Ska/2-tone track “Someday” to create another stunning vocal performance. The other 5 Intsrumental tracks have a blend of Reggae, Garage and the wonderful “Midnight Stroll” and “Two, Two One” top the Sixties Hammond feel on the tracks.
