With a new inspired sound, Minnesota-based singer-songwriter Moise has released his new single “Lee Scratch Perry” named after the producer of "Soul Rebel" by Bob Marley & The Wailers. Released via Unity Records, the new single explores a new sound for Moise which diverts from a more guitar-driven indie style with its relaxed warming and gentle instruments of slow and soft drums, percussions and guitar riffs. The track carries a warm emotion and soothing nature, created by an artist at the top of his game.
Speaking on his newly inspred single, Mosie writes “Growing up I was surrounded by the smooth vibrations of Bob Marleyand the Wailers. I remember my father putting on his greatest hits CDand hearing Soul Rebels, which was produced by Lee Scratch Perry,the godfather of the Rastafari sound in its earliest days. When making this song in the studio with Elliott on an August day in 2021, we were just whimsically scrolling through the Twitter timeline and heard the news that Lee Scratch Perry had just passed away, almost instantly we fired up a Spotify playlist of his tunes and just deep dived in his presence. After a few moments of reflecting and just listening to his soul-scratching and tempered rhythmic vibes, we started jamming this tune and rhythm in ode to Lee. It initially was a boop-beep drumsound that you hear pulsing through consistently throughout the songand Elliott playing this four-chord progression that struck a nerve.Within an hour we had the workings of a song and I began to hum along some lyrics. The ambience of the track was made that day and we chose to not change the song title from the working demo. Which Was titled after the great Lee Scratch Perry.”
The video for the track has a uniquely throwback feel to it. Simple, yet aesthetically beautiful. “Lee Scratch Perry” is out now on all streaming platforms.
