Two Spot Gobi’s last studio album ‘The Sun Will Rise’ (released on 5/11) features ten stellar examples of their melodic and captivating seasoned anthems and their thought provoking lyrics that deliver poignant messages of hope and prosperity for these challenging times. The Brighton sextet’s 4th release was recorded with legendary producer Niko Bolas (John Mayer, My Morning Jacket, Neil Young, Regina Spektor) in the heat of the California sun at the home of Grammy Award winning artist Jason Mraz.
Jason Mraz – “I was stoked to hear a band of real musicians teasing me with funk, jazz and organic pop. A fresh sound to my ears, British or wherever, it’s new for the world”.
The sun certainly shines through Two Spot Gobi’s sound. Their own brand of feel-good surf pop is a refreshing blend of the traditional and the innovative. Their unusual instrumentation adds trumpet and cello to bass, drums, guitar and the assured vocals of charismatic frontman James Robinson.
Joanne Good, BBC Radio London – Sunday Night Sessions – “Literally, probably the most entertaining band and special band that’s been on since I’ve been doing the show”.
Taking an organic approach to their sound, each instrument was recorded together in a live setting, reflecting the intensity and growing reputation of their live shows. Their touring schedule has seen them perform in the US and UK alongside artists such as Bruno Mars, Newton Faulkner and Michael Buble, and play for party guests including Paris Hilton, Tony Hawk, David Foster, Slash and Olivia Newton-John at a post Oscars event in Beverley Hills hosted by the lovely Leeza Gibbons.
