UK release date 14.06.2019

The New Mastersounds come up with a stone cold classic gem entitled 'Kings & Queens' I'ts still retro sounding with bashy bit crushed drums providing the motoric pulse plus some choice rhodes adorning this new platter.

There's some added sophistication too,supplied by a killer horn section who sound like they'd just come off a Steely Dan session.All in all a very classy affair headed by vocalist Lamar Williams Jnr who adds the cookies and cream to this feisty funk dish and Eddie Roberts pulls out a very measured guitar solo that fits perfectly with the vibe.This bodes exceedingly well for the new album which drops in september.NMS are back folks and it's so much more than just a footnote to their 20th anniversary coming up!
