Luis Clara Gomes, our man behind Moullinex, is paving the road towards a new album this year, and if “Open House” is any indication, get ready for a smooth ride into funk nirvana.
“Open House”, premiered yesterday at Majestic Casual, is an aptly named dancefloor gem, and there is no escaping its infectious groove. The piano hugs you like a long lost friend, and when those synth stabs kick in, it’s already too late: you’re under. This is the soundtrack for an imaginary club night ran by George Clinton and Colonel Abrams in 1981 Rio de Janeiro.
And who’s that on vocals? Tee Flowers, a singer/performer whose identity has been shrouded in mystery, has stepped into light for a wake up call: the best way to counter a rising divide is to get together. Dancing is one of the last standing manifestations of collective love, so we should join forces and celebrate difference. Call it militant escapism.
