REVIEW | Equals – 1997

Equals-1997-Cover lo


On the heels of a growing popularity, London duo Equals have delivered their debut album – 1997 – featuring an array of tracks defined by smooth, immersive grooves.

James’ writing is consistently strong, Ade’s harmonies have fervent gusto and the production is generally top notch.

Many contributors play a part too, with the most prominent being Awks, whose vocals on Husk and No Right are just stunning.

Not every song makes a mark, but as a whole, this is an enthralling funk record that leaves little doubt about Equals’ stance as one of the capital’s most promising pairs.

Triumph, Psalm For The Shadows, Hi-Def Retro, Letter To Leave, Husk
