The Souljazz Orchestra - "Bull's Eye" (audio) (premiere)

by Adrien Begrand

11 August 2015

Lively jazz/funk and biting social commentary coalesce wonderfully on the Canadian band's new track.
 

Canadian band the Souljazz Orchestra are set to release Resistance, their sixth album of vibrant funk, soul, afrobeat, Latin, and jazz. In keeping with their unique mix of ebullient horns and rhythms and sharp social commentary, new track “Bull’s Eye” is as pointed as the Ottawa band has ever sounded, taking aim at a particularly noteworthy contemporary topic.
  
“Bull’s Eye” was directly inspired by the Occupy movement,” says bandleader and multi-instrumentalist Pierre Chrétien. “The bull in the song refers to the Charging Bull on Wall Street, the iconic symbol of unbridled capitalism. The lyrics tell the rest of the story.”

Stream the track below, and also download it for free here.

Resistance will be released 9 September.
