Helsinki’s soul and funk label, Timmion Records have a new sub label called, Stylart and they are due to release their third single early this February.
Titled, Lost Lost Lost, this track is performed by soul duo, Pratt and Moody. Pratt & Moody are Tuomo Prättälä and Markus Nordenstreng, neither of which are strangers to singing, songwriting or playing instruments in jazz, soul or rock circles in Finland.
Recently they have performed under the title of Tuomo and Markus, but now the pair are releasing as Pratt & Moody & are unleashing their very own take on old school soul balladry.
For the last ten years, Tuomo has worked on soul and r&b as a solo artist, releasing Don’t Take It Too Hard in 2007. Markus has also had three solo albums and has collaborated with artists and groups such as Kris Kristoffersson, Wayne Kramer, Levon Helm and Wilco.
Backed by the Stylart house band Cold Diamond & Mink, Lost Lost Lost takes the listener back to the classic sounds of the late 60’s West Coast soul. It’s slow swing draws you in and simple-yet-sweet vocals caresses the ears, it’s a laid-back, easy-going and rather smooth affair. Listen above.
Lost Lost Lost is due on February 3rd, pre order your copy of from here.
