In support of their brilliant new album The Scene Between, Brighton 6-piece The Go! Team will play the Limelight 2 on Friday, June 19.
The sound of The Go! Team is a stunning blend of indie rock guitars, police show themes, hip-hop beats, and schoolyard chants built on samples and then augmented by live instrumentation.
The founder and leader of the team is Ian Parton, who provides guitar and sculpts their sound. The rest of the group includes Sam Dook on guitar, banjo, and drums; Chi Fukami Taylor on drums; Jamie Bell on bass; Ninja on vocals; and Kaori Tsuchida on drums, guitar, keyboards, and melodica.
Their fourth album, The Scene Between, is an album about singing – about pushing the melodic side of The Go! Team sound. Parton said: “I wanted to make an album driven by melody and song writing because catchiness is the hardest thing you can do. Brill Buildinghooks but permeated with a kind of wobbly VHS feel.”
