Fly is Momrelle and Momrelle alone. Where oft before the artist has aligned his incredible talents to the interests of others, here he cuts through with his own personal agenda wrapped around everything from jazz-funk hustle to majestic soul glide via peppy street beat jam.
The titular opening number is full of funky cut n thrust, feeding snappy drums beneath Momrelles soaring promise of love and life without bounds. Get On Up demonstrates serious sass too, switching smartly between struttin loops of bass guitar and that epic, call-to-arms chorus. But there are captivating changes in mood. The dreamy honey-soul seduction of Spotlight, gentle piano caress of Everythings Alright .
We are also treated to a bonus hook-up with The Layabouts, 1 Step 2 Luv - the combination of slick Momrelle vocals and crisp acoustic pulse works a treat. Then theres Reel Peoples deep soul-house remix of Fly, which built lovingly upon layers of lush synths and pads, and those sweet 4-4 drums, rounds us off in fine, fine style....
