Irreversible Entanglements - "Free Love"

Free-jazz quintet Irreversible Entanglements have signed with the iconic jazz label Impulse! and announced their new album and it's lead single, "Free Love."

Recorded at the legendary Rudy Van Gelder Studios in Englewood Cliffs, NJ, the new record from Irreversible Entanglements continues the groups foray of mixing the chaos of free-jazz with the spirit of punk, two genres that share more in common than most will admit or recognize, and the first single, "Free Love," is a sensational trip that moves with unbridled spirit and flowing energy. As free-form rhythms abound, the frenetic energy from the group is soothed by the powerful words of Moor Mother and her praise and passion for spreading joy ruminates throughout. According to the band, the song contains a "universal message that provokes unity through a love that lives free, the love that lives in you." It's a stirring jam that breaths with life and radiates with affection, the loose brass and woodwinds acting like a cosmic force while sturdy bass and riveting percussive grooves add bright textures. The interstellar vibes are supreme here and the double-tracked, overlapping vocals from Moor Mother beam in from the heavens bringing forth more spiritual positivity to the song's freeing energy. "I want more love / sweet love" she croons, vocalizing a feeling and redemption so many crave and giving the affirmation searched for by countless others.
