Sol Nation : Every Reason


Sol Nation are a Melbourne reggae collective with roots in East Timorese folk and Afro-Beat. They have a self-titled EP behind them and this new single ahead, to be launched at the NSC on February 3. It starts out pleasantly enough – a loping, electric guitar laced reggae tune with buttery vocals, but things get really interesting three minutes in. The tempo ramps up to a heart-starting Cuban salsa beat at the female backing vocalist does a quick tongue tribal-flavoured rap. Simple but effective.
