Hidden Gem #86: Brother’s Testament – Ascent

Brother's Testament's debut EP, "Ascent".
Brother’s Testament come in swinging with their debut EP, ‘Ascent’. The London-based quartet explores different styles fusing elements of jazz with aspects of hip-hop, funk, gospel, and even classical music. The band is comprised of Mark Mollison on guitar, Hugo Piper on bass, Jack Robson on drums, and bandleader Munashe-Caleb Manyumbu on keys and synths. The album opens with Moonwalker, an undeniably funky jam that lets us know right away that they’ve cooked up something very special. Fourth track Night Of Contentment is, as its name suggests, a serene and peaceful number, while I Think About You Sometimes comes packed with frantic energy with the foursome all showcasing their virtuoso skills. The six tracks are full of surprises and Brother’s Testement are a band you should get to know.
Released May 4th, 2018
