Hold on to your brain waves ship mates ‘cos Urban Prophecies are back with a new track full of inspiring lyrics and catching riffs to get you tapping those toes and singing along in anticipation of an album in early 2014, we here at the flag were lucky enough to get a listen.
Most of you will remember Urban Prophecies from their inspirational charity offering ‘Wires’ which saw all profits going to the Meningitis Trust, but now they are back with frontman Manuel Chowdhury ripping up the gob iron on ‘We Felt The Earth Move’ which sees the band take a step away form their comfort zone to offer a more commercial stamp on their usual songs. Before you panic don’t worry, the purest elements of what Urban Prophecies is still exists, in catchy lyrics, infectious beats and sexy riffs but packaged to appeal to a greater range of people and ages.
The track itself is a smooth feel good ride from start to finish that pulls you effortlessly into a quick pace, flying past at a hefty pace like a wild party but never losing it’s control over you throughout. The lyrics are clever and inspirational, well delivered and consistent despite the pace of the backing track which is all part of the drama of the song. It’s a song that will make you feel good when you hear it, it’s designed to evoke an emotion in you and it’s clear that there will be armies of fans singing along to this for a long time. ‘We Felt The Earth Move’ is an epic anthem with drive and passion and I for one think that next year can’t come quick enough so we can get a full album.
You can listen to the track on SoundCloud and you can download it for free from the Urban Prophecies website. If you want to find out more about the band then head over to FaceBook or Twitter, for now here is the long awaited video for ‘We Felt The Earth Move’;
