I have it on very good authority that these guys are ‘pure ripping it up,’ in New York and further afield in USA at the moment. ‘White Hot!’ is the quote that was used to describe them.
As you’ll see from their website, they’ve certainly gigged hard to get their music heard and though I’m not saying this is particularly my personal choice in music, I do think FIFTH NATION offer something a little bit different and so as always, LOUD HORIZON is happy to chip in its support.
Here’s how the band see themselves (lifted from their website and Facebook page):
Fifth Nation is the white-hot soul-rock creation of lovers King Julia and Musik Read.
After meeting on a Texan stage in the Spring of 2009, they released their first record ‘FLIGHT’ and spent six months touring the United States. After releasing ‘IT’S ON’ the following Spring, they abandoned their nomadic mission to settle in Brooklyn, NYC, where they recorded two singles (‘I’M IN LOVE,’ ‘FIGHT A WAR’), an EP: ‘TV IS DEAD’, a full-length self-produced record ‘NATHANIEL,’ and released four official videos with director Edwin Escobar.
They toured twice to California to fuel the cultivation of their NYC home studio, where they now incessantly record between performances for their booming fanbases around the Northeast. They are focused on releasing and licensing self-produced music and preparing for expansive American and Global tours. They are dedicated to the mission of promoting Love through
sexy-badass Rock ‘n Soul.
OK – so you’ve read the words …. now hear the tunes!
