Bio

Baldwins is an eight-piece progressive-soul band hailing from Sydney, Australia. Combining elements of soul, jazz, and rock, the band have developed a distinctive sound with lush jazz-tinged harmony and dense polyrhythmic writing.

A multitude of eclectic influences have informed the band’s sound – a genre they themselves call ‘progressive soul’ – which takes cues from such neo-soul/hip-hop artists as Thundercat and D’Angelo, the textural composition of producers such as Taylor McFerrin, as well as influences from alternative artists such as Radiohead. All of these inspirations have amalgamated in an unconventional sound that is entirely their own.

Coming off the back of the release of singles 'Dirty Sheets' and 'Goldbrick', Baldwins released their debut EP "Fear Of Flying" in Aug 2017.

This is like dipping your head in a bowlful of jelly (in that it wobbles soulfully all around you).

I've already lost count of how many bodies are in this bloody band but I can tell you for sure that Courtney's vocals are a stand out.

If you ever need to remind yourself just how much fatness horn lines can add to a tune - listen here. It's impossible accurately capture in writing how infectious this groove is live.
