Get On Down with All We Are
Funk and rock have long been compatriots, but when you add high-pitched singing reminiscent of the Bee Gees, you might be onto something truly original. That is exactly the formula the Liverpool-borne band All We Are has employed in their fledgling musical careers. They have wowed audiences in the United Kingdom and in the United States alike, making them one of the new bands to watch in this revamped psychedelic rock funk scene.
All We Are seems to be regularly jumping back and forth across the pond between the United Kingdom and the East Coast of the United States. They will be playing venues like Nice 'n Sleazy in Glasgow, The Old Fire Station in Bournemouth, Oval Space and Field Day in London and Kilkenny's Ale House in Newark, New Jersey.
Each band member wishes for his/her own theme song when walking into a room. Bassist Guro Gikling would want hers to be the Beatles' "I Am The Walrus." Drummer Rich O'Flynn wishes his was the theme tune to Black Books. Guitarist Luis Santos would want his to be the theme song from the film Jaws.
With the mix of a wide variety of influences and styles, it makes sense that the trio All We Are comes from all over the world. Gikling is from Norway, O'Flynn is from Ireland and Santos is from Brazil. Their favourite bands also span the musical spectrum, from Frank Ocean to Broken Social Scene to TV on the Radio. Because of their different backgrounds and musical tastes, an amalgam of musical influences are brought to the band.
All We Are has been playing shows in the United Kingdom in particular for a while now and building up a pretty healthy fan base. They have also supported other up-and-coming groups in their same style and genre, like Jungle, all over their country and Europe. Their first real breakthrough came through a feature article by the Pulitzer Prize-winning paper, The Guardian, as one of the New Bands from Up North. The piece helped the band and their music access the massive readership of The Guardian and truly solidified them as a new band on the scene to watch in the next few years.
All We Are has actually not released an album, but they have released a number of different singles over the past few years to supplement their avid touring. While an album is in the works, the band has shown its ability to do a variety of different types of music through their singles. Their latest track "Utmost Good" showcases their ability to do old fashioned electronic pop. Their song "I Wear You" shows off their unique psychedelic rock stylings while "Feel Safe" displays their groove and funk talents. Both of the latter songs have more than a million plays online apiece.
With the mix of electronic, rock and funk found in All We Are's music, you should check yourself for a pulse if you don't find yourself dancing at a performance. As they have proven on each of their tours, they can play just about any venue out there and wow the crowd, whether it's a large festival or a small bar. If you're lucky enough to find All We Are tickets, prepare to be entertained and work up a sweat.
