Dos Palos - Lady of the Westway / I've Been Around [NUNS006]
Dos Palos take the elements of Psychedelic Soul, Folk, Funk and mix it in the golden urn of Balearica to build a sound that is firmly rooted but reaches for a bright future.
Robin states “the inspiration behind the tracks comes from a need to write songs. I’ve always loved making tracks with Faze Action, and although in recent years there have been more songs on that front, the majority of the material is squarely on the dance floor. However, I’ve always wanted to get better at songwriting because, for me, it is the most challenging form of music to create. I’ve been strongly influenced by classic west coast sounds such as The Beach Boys, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young and The Eagles as well as bands such as Steely Dan, that moved out west. Jan Hammer Group, Terry Callier, Gil Scott Heron, Earth, Wind and Fire, Hendrix and Carlos Santana have all been influences. But in the end, Dos Palos is really about connecting people and if the songs strike a chord with people and if they feel less alone because of them, that would really be fulfilling…”
