One of the country’s hottest up and comers and purveyors of deep funk and soul, The Transatlantics, are proud to launch their self-titled debut album at the East Brunswick Club on Saturday 31st July.

The Transatlantics are one of Adelaide’s finest exports, forming a few years back and taking inspiration from modern soul artists such as Sharon Jones and The Daptone family as well as classic soul labels such as Stax, Hi and Motown. Their sound invokes the grainy warmth of southern American Soul and the rhythmic grunt of classic James Brown-era funk.

Led by the commanding vocal presence of Tara Lynch and comprising three horns, two guitars, bass and drums, this eight-piece band has gained a well deserved reputation for their high energy live shows, working hard on stage to create the unrelentig, deep groove so central to the funk and soul tradition.

Tune into Soulgroove 66 this Saturday from 3pm for The Transatlantics live!
