Time to get your groove on Funk Soul Brothers and Sisters! It’s Friday and that means it’s time for another Funky Knutts Friday song!
Last weeks song by Rag’n’Bone Man featuring Rudimental was a stonker of a tune. If you missed last week, you can read it and listen here.
I am going back to my rock roots this week with a little known band called Nine Miles South. Fear not, it’s not Heavy Metal, no screaming and thrashing here, but just pure and simple rock with a hint of blues/country about it.
I had the pleasure of seeing these guys live back last year at a small gig in Guildford. They were support another band and I literally couldn’t believe my ears when they started playing. I really wasn’t expecting what I heard.
Catchy riffs, crisp and gritty vocals and as tight playing together as my husband is with his money.
I knew as soon as I was out of there, I was getting on iTunes and downloading their songs.
Being a new-ish band, they haven’t got too many strings to their bow yet but the songs they have got are fantastic. Their latest one, Bones, has a super slick ‘Nordic-noir’-esque video for it too which is totally worth a look. I love it but it wasn’t quite punchy enough to be my Friday Feeling song. That’s where this song comes in. Enjoy Knutters!
Song: The Reckoning
Artist: Nine Miles South
Year of release: 2015
Nine Miles South is made up of four band members. They are:
Seb Mikkelsen – vocals, guitars
Jon Antony- guitar, backing vocals
Andy Sleigh – bass, backing vocals
David Wilson – drums
Though these guys sound like they hail from the Deep Southern States of America (think Kentucky, Alabama, etc) they are in fact from Guildford, Surrey. Brilliant eh?! A fairly new band but one that is absolutely deserving of hitting the big time in the not too distant future.
Seb is from Denmark but the other guys are British. Their grit and attitude smacks you around the face within the first few opening bars and you can’t help but tap your foot and nod your head along to their songs (or dance about the kitchen pretending you’re some sort of rock god in my case).
I wish them every success and if you like their stuff, do head on over to iTunes and give them some love. These new bands have to work their asses off to be noticed so the more we do to support them the better. You can also see where they are performing live next by clicking here.
All the best Nine Miles South. You’re destined for rock greatness.
