We first got to know about MATHER & KINGDON (Stuart Mather and Chris Kingdon) last year with the release of the lovely ‘Life’s So Sweet’ album. (see our reviews archive).
The duo are currently working on the follow-up long player – ‘Short Stories’ – and to get things rolling they are all set to release the first single – a fab re-working of Barry White’s 1979 song ‘I Found Love’. It’s not one of big Bazza’s best known songs; he cut it while wriggling out of a record deal, just prior to forming Unlimited Gold…. but it’s a proper soul gem and Chris and Stu do it proud! Great tune, committed vocal and lovely sax work from Chris Kingdon.
The single’s putative B side is a remix of ‘Hold On’, one of the key cuts on the ‘Life’s So Sweet ‘ album.
MATHER & KINGDON – I FOUND LOVE / HOLD ON (2016 REMIX) RELEASED ON DSG ON 27TH MAY.
