We're proud to present our new EP, 'On Job' - dedicated to all the creatives working out of Manchester and driving the scene forward. This 5 track EP of original music features a couple of tracks familiar to live audiences over the past couple of years, as well as 3 new compositions written especially for the session! The grittier sounds of this EP provide the perfect backdrop for Chunky in full flow, and his lyrics feature prominently throughout.

The EP kicks off with lush brass chords leading to the driving house groove of 'Deet Darh' composed by Nick Walters and named after Chunky's rhythmical lyric to match the trombone riff. Next up is fan favourite 'Subjugate', composed by drummer Steve Pycroft - a heavy hip hop beat proves the perfect vehicle to hear Chunky in full flow. 'Watch Me', composed by Kieran McLeod, is a more reflective number featuring dense brass harmonies as well as a classic Sammy Warn trumpet solo. The last two tracks, 'Hummingbird' and 'Kraken' are composed by trombonist Ed Horsey, and are explorations of a darker, bassier sound world, influenced by the sounds of grime and drill.

We hope you enjoy this new EP as much as we enjoyed recording it!
