Great Yarmouth’s DOGGETT BROTHERS (Greg and Carl) have been mainstays of the UK soul scene for some years now… think I first came across ’em on a 2010 ‘Soul Unsigned’ album. Then a few years back they broke through big-time with their ‘Colours’ album. Some tasty singles, a remix project and collaborations with people like HD have kept Greg and Carl’s name out there.
The good news is the Doggetts are on their marks and getting set to release a brand new long player – ‘Get High’. The ten tracker is set for UK release at the end of September but as a taster the boys have just released the album’s title cut as a single… and it’s a proper little modern soul corker!
The melody’s strong and sweet, the beats are tight and the vocal from the too long neglected Nate James is bob on! The tune rides a solid groove but there’s a whiff of edgy electronics too which maybe indicates a subtle change of direction for the boys.
We’ll wait and see but we’re told that amongst other album contributors are Jarrod Lawson and Coco Malone. We look forward to bringing you a full review just as soon as we have our copy. In the meantime…. ‘Get High’!
