Built around duo Peter Dale and Guy Snook, Songs For Mr Sloane are an extremely talented group of musicians who collaborate to original, modern funk and soul music. Tapping into the current pop trend for the genre without going fully into ‘pop’ territory, their tracks are radio-friendly, great fun and – most importantly – supremely good.

Their new 11 track album is out now (you can get a taster and buy it here or buy it on iTunes), and comes highly recommended for fans of subtlety who also just enjoy a good tune. The grooves and riffs will quickly get under your skin, and the fact that it looks back to classic soul instead of drawing on a modern version makes it oddly fresh.

‘It Is What It Is’ is out now.
