Soul Saboteur are an alt-blues-rock band based in Manchester, who formed in November last year and have already managed to record an outstanding EP featuring four powerful tracks. Clip Your Wings is a strong and ambitious piece of a musical art, filled with effective melodies and the wowing vocals of James Stone, who’s excellent lyric writing adds to the special atmosphere, which this engaging music provides.
The title track Clip Your Wings sets the bar high with it’s bluesy guitar melody and the ‘Eddie Vedder like’ howls from singer James. The second track Medicinal Venom comes with a mind blowing vocal intro and straight away becomes your favourite. You realise that this band has created something very special here. Next song Dark After Dark impresses with its lyrics “I would have given my right arm for you, just to have held the hand that hung from it. Now more hangs from my neck than this bow tie…” and you feel the deep emotion running through this record from start to finish as Stranded (in the devils council) closes up with its intense and colorful blues vibes.
