From UK: The Sea Slugs - What’s Not Reflected


The Sea Slugs’ unique music is borne out of a collective condemnation of intolerance, a strong sense of solidarity with fellow humans, and a passion for the music of Fela Kuti. The result is a visceral, often turbulent sound with a subversive edge. The product of a wide array of musical influences and political and humanitarian motivations, The Sea Slugs’ contemporary take on Afrobeat is both potent and communicable; their sound and intent are indivisible.

The band adopted the name ‘The Sea Slugs’ in 2013, and have since been gigging and leading workshops across the country, taking in opportunities to work and share ideas with some renowned musicians, including percussionist Lekan Babalola and keyboard player in Fela Kuti’s Egypt 80 band, Dele Sosimi. These experiences helped shape the sound heard on The Sea Slugs’ debut album ‘What’s Not Reflected.’, recorded on December 5th 2013 and released the following spring.

The Sea Slugs’ second album, ‘Women, They Cause Fear’, recorded across one weekend in December 2014, sees the band take a huge step forward, forging a truly original sonic identity, and directing their musical ferocity at those in ‘power’ who disseminate intolerance, distrust and fear amongst their own people.

The Sea Slugs’ unique music is borne out of a collective condemnation of intolerance, a strong sense of solidarity with fellow humans, and a passion for the music of Fela Kuti. The result is a visceral, often turbulent sound with a subversive edge, subjecting the listener to songs beyond a common pop structure. Every incorporated element is expressed through quantum musicality: big intros, melodies evocative of Jupiter, explorative improvisations and dynamic call and response to course through your veins. The product of a wide array of musical influences and political and humanitarian motivations, The Sea Slugs’ contemporary take on Afrobeat is both potent and communicable; their sound and intent are indivisible.
