The Record To Play At The EURO 2020 Games – ‘GET UP SEQUENCES PART ONE’ By THE GO! TEAM

3 July 2021

Band: THE GO! TEAM
Who: Brighton’s exhilarating soul/funk/pop 6-piece band
Active: Since 2000 / 6 studio albums (including this new one)

New album: GET UP SEQUENCES PART ONE
Released: 2 July 2021 via Memphis Industries
Press info: “It’s a place where routine is outlawed and perfection is the
enemy. Where Ennio Morricone meets the Monkees armed with flutes,
glockenspiels, steel drums and a badass analogue attitude. We’re talking
widescreen, four-track, channel hopping sounds that are instantly
recognisable.”

Turn Up The Volume: I wonder how legendary music orchestras such as Sly and The Family Stone, The Jackson Five and Parliament would sound right now, right here. I go for
The Go! Team. Similar upbeat spirit, similar party vibes, similar multi-voiced joyousness and similar live pizzaz (I saw and heard how they woke up a crowd at a Belgian festival a couple of years ago). This go(al) team should play Euro 2020… on all stadiums’ stereos, uniting all people present there and at watching at home.

Key singles/clips: World Remember Me Now / A Bee Without Its Sting

THE GO! TEAM With Detroit Teenager On Vocals – Hear New Single ‘A BEE WITHOUT ITS STING’

New sonic impulses…

16 June 2021

Band: THE GO! TEAM
Who: Brighton’s exhilarating soul/funk/pop 6-piece band
Active: Since 2000 / 6 studio albums (including new one)

New album: GET UP SEQUENCES PART ONE
Out: 2 July 2021 via Memphis Industries
Press info: “It’s a place where routine is outlawed and perfection is the
enemy. Where Ennio Morricone meets the Monkees armed with flutes,
glockenspiels, steel drums and a badass analogue attitude. We’re talking
widescreen, four-track, channel hopping sounds that are instantly
recognisable.”

New single: A BEE WITHOUT ITS STING
Already the 4th single from the upcoming LP.

Ian Parton (the team captain): ““When I was working on the last Go! Team record
‘Semicircle’ I approached the choir leader of a Detroit school called the Detroit Academy
For Arts And Sciences and asked if any of her students were interested in singing on a
Go! Team song. So when it came to finding the singer for ‘A Bee Without Its Sting’ I thought
again of the choir. One of the singers was a teenager called Jessie Miller whose voice was
perfect for the song. She’d never been into a recording studio before, but her voice is so
full of character.”

Seems like The Jacksons 5 are back in town.

Here we go!…
