AJ Holmes And The Hackney Empire
Just Retribution EP Singing Dunes Records

Article written by Ged M - Nov 18, 2015

aj_holmes_retribution.jpg
Second single from the East Londoner who brings Africa into Albion. First, ‘Just Retribution’ invites you to dance away relationship troubles with a Congolese rumba. Then ‘Mein Leibster Feind’ is a tender ballad inspired by a Mark Twain quote that has little touches of African guitar and, lastly, ‘CLA’ is a frenzied, fuzzy disco track, like a sleazy Talking Heads. It’s world music that could only be made in a world city like London, and seems a perfect match for the dancefloor of some hipster Hackney hangout.
