Ikebe Shakedown – The Beast b/w Road Song

Ikebe Shakedown are back with a brand new bag of hard-hitting tunes recorded at Dunham Studios. This limited single is a precursor to their much anticipated sophomore full-length album due out this summer.

“The Beast” finds the band in fine form, with their signature multi-layered horns featured front and center on top of an underlying slow-burning groove. “Road Song” is a slight departure from their sound with a haunting piano melody in place of the horns, floating over a sinister bassline driven by tight drumming throughout. This version of the song is exclusive to this 7-inch single.
