1er album du Rocksteady Sporting Club

After four 7" singles, the Rocksteady Sporting Club goes to LP, with the recording of its first full length album.

alt

8 brand new songs, marking a turning-point in RSC’s sound: while ska and rocksteady influences are still present, rock and soul tunes assert themselves, as well as the voice of Manou, the lead female singer. All this leads to a less « vintage » but much more « direct » and contemporary sound, closer to the band’s current development, after 15 years of experience.

Born on an island (Reunion Island, between Madagascar and Mauritius), the Rocksteady Sporting Club has always been centered around its charismatic singer, Manou, a character of its own. So « Holy Soul - Backyard Diaries » will be, fairly enough, a kind of concept album. A logbook run by a fictional character, combining lives of real-life figures and Manou herself. The artwork of the album is created by CLEIII, an artist hailing from Reunion Island.

After a first French tour in 2016, the RSC will present « Holy Soul - Backyard Diaries » on stage starting from march 2019.

In the meantime, many thanks for your past, present and forthcoming support!
