"Unite Tribe"

From north Co. Dublin, the seven-strong Unite Tribe (nee the Rastafenians) have spent the past two years on a heavyweight run of shows up and down the country. Along the way they've honed an extremely effective new-wave reggae style, and what's obvious from their debut album is how the band's abilities as songwriters and performers have grown and matured. I'm just waiting, for instance, may pivot on a relatively simple groove, but this confident little groove slowly turns into a glorious clatter of sound, complete with a lovely
interplay between vocalists Brian Kelly and Ciara Bradshaw. But this isn't the extent of Unite Tribe's sonic
smacks: the robust "Head Police" and the restrained, righteous anger of "Medgar Evers Blues" (named for the US civil rights agitator assassinated in 1963) show they can also pack a punch on a lyrical level as well. A fine start.

Bio

"Unite Tribe are the leading light in the ever growing reggae Scene in Ireland" (Hotpress).
Formed in 2004 their experimental sound has swept them to the forefront of the Irish Music scene.

Sounding somewhere between Reggae/dub/Triphop, Unite Tribe have
transformed the reggae scene and forced crowds to bracket them separately from more straight
forward reggae bands.

Their deep thought and relationship with their history and roots bring a cross cultural aspect of
traditional Ireland juxtaposed with reggae and other types of music.

More recently their continually growing respect has landed the prize supports slots with Israel Vibration, The Congos, The Gladiators, Culture The Black Seeds and The Skatalites (where Unite Tribe received the Irish Times Gig of
the week),... They also continue to impress at every venue and festival they play accross Europe.

2007 saw the band not only launched their debut album, but also launch themselves onto the
European scene. 2008 The tribe moved to berlin and started to toughen up they're sound and begin writing/recording they're 2nd album under Rastafenian Records.
