Hackney Colliery Band share opening track from upcoming album Sharpener

Hackney Colliery Band - SharpenerEast London’s Hackney Colliery Band are set to release Sharpener, their third full-length album, next month. Slated for a July 15th release, the record “shows the band on fine form and more confident than ever”, explains the press release, “with powerful new electronic elements and a dance floor sensibility adding to the jazz, rock and soul for which they are known”. Sharpener is a collection of original work as well as unusual covers, including Three Trapped Tigers’ ‘Cramm’, Nirvana’s ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ and Kwabs’ ‘Wrong or Right’.
The nine-piece brass band have shared a taste of what’s coming our way in the form of euphoric album opener ‘Jump Then Run’, composed and arranged by Steve Pretty. It will get you dancing for sure.
