RedGoldGreen presents Overbound, the new single from The Oddroots. Now available on all the best digital platforms
The single faces the issue of awareness of one’s own limits and the need to go beyond them. This need appears oppressed by the modern world which does nothing but lull us into our comfort zone, extinguishing our vital spark.
Born from an imaginary reggae / dub, the song is conceived with a modern approach, starting from electronic production that mixes with the “acoustic” sound of the band.
The anxious atmosphere and the interlocking rhythms of the intro reflect the unease, the sense of oppression of today’s life and then move away from it through the power of the brass that with their movement push us to overcome the daily stasis, to grow and reach spiritual and intellectual freedom to feel better about ourselves and face the reality that surrounds us
“The Oddroots” are a group originally from Rome born in 2019. Their musical research starts from reggae and dub roots contaminated by numerous influences, funk, soul, ska, jazz, hip hop, with the intention of creating a modern and original sound. The artistic heterogeneity of the 8 members of the band finds a synthesis in a main horn section with its themes, vocal lines with strong soul inspirations and atmospheres ranging from funk to dub.
In 2021, after having released a live session entitled Ayahuaska, the group released the two singles Strangers and Queen of Evolution produced at Andrea Saponara’s Polistudio Recording.
