Jurassic 5 are back and they’ve released their first single “The Way We Do It”, which is available as a free download on their Soundcloud page. The track is classic J5 with an old-school feel, a bouncy White Stripes sample and production provided by the late Heavy D.
The band released their last album Feedback in 2006 and broke up a year later. Who knows why they’ve decided to reform but I’m glad they’re not just milking the back catalogue on tour. I’ve always been a huge fan and Chali 2na possesses one of my favourite voices in the world. “The Way We Do It” is hopefully a sign of lots of new material on the way.
J5 play Vicar Street on 16th and 17th of June. Yep, that’s next week! Tickets are €36 and it seems there are still some left, so get your asses over to Ticketmaster and get some! In the meantime download the tune and enjoy.
