Melbourne outfit 30/70 released their full length record Elevate via Rhythm Section Intl late last year. For what proved to be the UK label’s biggest release of 2017, the collective are now hitting the major cities around Australia to share their latest offering on the Elevate National Tour.
Lovingly referred to as a community rather than a band, 30/70 is, at its core, a quintet made up of Allysha Joy, Ziggy, Henry, Thhomas & Jarrod that swells up to an 11 piece ensemble as and when the music calls for it.
The sound of 30/70 is a cosmic mélange of boom-bap dynamics, neo-soul harmonies and jazz-funk licks, all steeped in a deep spiritual tradition reaching from Alice Coltrane to Kamasi Washington. Despite their influences coming from across the pacific, the 30/70 sound is unmistakably Melbourne.
Melbourne’s relative isolation could in fact be a blessing in disguise. It’s resulted in a pressure cooker of talent; a tight-knit, well practiced network of musicians who’ve put in the hours, paid their dues and are ready to explode into the wider global consciousness. 30/70 are leading the pack with their latest offering.
The resulting recording is a sublime statement; at once a cry for help and a call to arms, it balances delicate poetry and potent aggression with ease – all of this done with a beguiling pop sensibility.
