Reviewing The Upcoming Album by The Overtones’

It seems the Overtones don’t get tired with their non-stop creations. Having had 3 hit albums,

an average of 750,000 sales and three super successful frontline voyages hitting the stages, the

five- piece harmony have further plans to recreate classic tunes for modern world's viewers.

Discovered by a Warner Brothers talent hunt singing during their tea-break in the era time

when they were working as decorators in a store near Oxford Street,  the band has recently

announced their fourth creation's release on 9th day of February 2015 anticipating It's huge

success like their previous albums. 'Sweet Soul Music' by The Overtones will be coming out in

the collaboration with Warner Music Entertainment.

The band carried their togetherness and rocking skills to honor the pioneers of doo-wop and

soul music The Drifters, Al Green, Marvin Gaye and The Temptations. 'Sweet Soul Music' will be

portrayed as the mark of respect to these legendary and iconic musicians and singers that the

boys grew up listening to and who have a great inspiration throughout their musical journey.

The new album was prepared at Sarm Studios in the production of Julian Hinton (Seal, Rumer,

and Trevor Horn). The album aims taking their listeners back to the era of 1960s, when

innovative TV shows were like 'Ready Steady Go in addition to 'The Tami Show' that began

giving some legendry artists like James Brown, The Temptations, Jerry Lee Lewis and The

Supremes to the world.

The lead singer of the band, Timmy Matley believes that the album will have all classic tracks

that have been ruling the airwaves.  ‘it’s been just an honor for us to take on these greatest

songs and we have really worked hard on it by stretching our tones of voice, and our choral

competences, our harmonies, our full approach so that we can move into a special gear.'

Lachie Chapman was of the same opinion that soul music is something that doesn’t only make

people dance on its beats but also hits in their hearts. Speaking of his views the music artist of

the Overtones said that there come some beautiful feelings in the wake of these songs and that

make us listening to them even after half century of their release. Their magical and delightful

notion is widespread having something that every person can speak about.

The new creation begins with the wavering title song 'Sweet Soul Music' that  was at first

recorded by Arthur Conley and co-written by the legendary Otis Redding. The album also

includes The Temptations' breathtaking track 'Get Ready', Martha & The Vandellas' sweltering

'Heat Wave' , Marvin Gaye's archetypal 'How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You',  as well as The

Drifters 'Under The Boardwalk'

'Sweet Soul Music'  also contains some innovative lyrics of the boys shaping like 'Something

Good', 'Giving Me Soul' and 'Moving On' where the band seems to be putting a new soul in

their making. The last of these three tracks was produced by Duck (The Wanted, Lawson).there

is no doubt that these songs are one of the excellent creations by the Overtones and capture

the spirit and real sense of the classics sitting like a dream beside them. The new album also

goes on with the deep-rooted habit of self-written originals by the band, like as 'Gambling

Man', 'Loving The Sound' and 'Superstar'.
