SLAVES NO MORE – The Unravelling 2xCD (4iB Records)
SLAVES NO MORE is the new project of Kevin Tomkins and Paul Taylor. SNM was conceptualised some time ago and incepted right after the decision to end Sutcliffe Jugend and it's official announcement made at the end of 2019.
‘The Unravelling’ is the inaugural release that officially paves the new artistic direction of Sutcliffe Jugend. This double album marks the continuity of their musical journey, and perseveres in the creative vision and sonic execution of the Kevin and Paul.
The maturity displayed in the 10 tracks and its progressive nature are dominantly presented through complex layered soundscapes and new dimensions of vocal ranges that feature ‘Scott Walker-esque’ baritone and soprano parts. The avoidance of cliched tunefulness and implementation of unusual notes, further accompanied by dark lyrics and subtly intense vocal aesthetics make all of this “essential to the ‘unravelling’ of the character“.
