The NM Band – She Wants (Isle of Jura 12″)


Official reissue of ‘She Wants’, one of the first UK Street Soul singles originally released in 1985 by The NM Band. TIP!

The NM Band was an alias for UK Lovers Rock band Natural Mystic, who by 1985 wanted to try something away from their trademark roots reggae sound. Influenced by the availability of affordable hardware the band set about fusing Reggae and Soul using an Akai Drum machine, Yamaha DX7 and Roland sound module. ‘She Wants’ is one of the forebearers of UK Street Soul, raw machine drums paired with an incredibly soulful vocal from Ashley Sommers.

Watch out for the Dub Version on B, ‘She Wants’ (More)!

Out through the masters of slow burn, Isle of Jura.
