With an authentic vintage Rocksteady sound (heavily influenced by Alton Ellis, Ken Boothe, The Paragons). Young Israelites debute E.P ‘Stay By My Side’ (released in 2020) quickly caught the attention of the international reggae scene: “One of the great things about music is when you hear something new and fresh and it hits you, Bang. And that definitely is my favorite record for this week. It’s made by a new band to me. They call themselves Young Israelites. Lovely vocals and those rim shots, straight out of a 1966 rocksteady record. The Young Israelites with ‘Stay by my Side’.” (David Rodigan BBC 1Xtra)
On July 2022 the band released the first single from their new album called ‘Can’t Get Enough’ in collaboration with the legendary Gordon ‘Commissioner’ Williams, supported by an animation video clip by French artists Joseph and Gabriel Colban. With sweet vocal harmonies and raw sound, Young Israelites are bringing back the golden years of Lovers Rock that are missing so much these days, so come nice up the place and enjoy the purity of an old school Rocksteady dance!
