Tallowah make a triumphant return with long awaited second album ‘Round 3’, a record blazing into life with a defiant, boundless energy. Full, beefy bass and rock solid drums create a foundation that is organic, mighty and rooted, like a tree grown out of the Earth, while keyboards and rhythm guitar keep the movement buoyant, bouncing us along on a great ball of energy. Percussive rhythms and tight, tribal harmonies give ‘Round 3’ a primal, collective feel, as well as a healthy dose of effects on electric guitar and melodica giving rise to a psychedelic vibe. Frontman Joe Garner’s vocals are on top form, with bold, determined melodies that reverberate around your head long after the last rimshot has echoed out. Impeccable production creates a well rounded, almost 3D sound, as if you have been engulfed into the centre of the record and surrounded. With ‘Round 3’, Tallowah have proven themselves to be heavyweights of the UK reggae scene.
