Black Soul Golden Reunion were born like all songs should come to life : in between a beer and a cigarette, in the soft darkness of a rehearsing room, among laughters and insults. The song that opens the album, The Line, is obviously an example of the funk influence delivered by the leading voice, just like Mad and No Chorus ; these tracks reveal the spirit of the band, deeply rooted into soul and rock blues music. Keep it Dark hides an unexpected taste of metal, brought to light by the two guitarists' background ; the lyrics have been inspired by Keith Richards' first experiences with love and a girl, back in his teens, as narrated in his autobiography. Goldfall, the song chosen to be the single of the album, surely shows an unconditionate love for Led Zeppelin, while The End's Theme and Heavy mostly represent the common ground of the whole band : hard rock (The Black Crowes). The only cover of the album is Everybody Get Up, written by The Bellrays (Kekaula/Vennum), which , in the past few years, might have been the main source of inspiration of the band. On the whole, Black Soul Golden Reunion can be defined as a mix of funk, hard rock and punk, spiced by a female voice distinctly coming from soul music. Turn the volume up and listen to their debut album !
