Kreol Lovecall is South London-born multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Richards.‘Time’ is the second single taken from Kreol Lovecall’s upcoming album ‘Jangle and Chime’, due for release 3rd March 2017. We have the video premiere for ‘Time’ a grooving meditative track with buzzing instrumentation carrying a fiercely prescient message of universal struggle and unity in the era of President Trump’s Muslim Ban.
Inspired in part by the conscious soul of the 60s – Sly and the Family Stone, Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, ‘Time’ its intended as a “brief discourse on the universal struggles and concerns of all humans regardless of any of our perceived differences.”
“At this current time of divisive politics, it looks to the things in life that bond us together as a species. Social strife, depression and death, love and compassion as some examples.Written from the perspective of a person not clearly categorised either racially or culturally. The same but different. Like you.”
Until recently an integral member of UK heavy psych rockers Hey Colossus, Richards played a major part in the band’s transition from harsh noise-rock blowouts to a more focused and melodic proposition. His influence is most apparent on their two 2015 albums, ‘In Black And Gold’ and ‘Radio Static High’(both on Rocket Recordings).
Written and recorded in the spring of 2016, his new album ‘Jangle and Chime’ anticipates the increased unease and division subsequently surfacing on the streets of Britain & the US in the fallout from seismic elections.
