Album - ‘LIGHT THE HORIZON’ – Released 23rd May 2011
Pirates Blend Records 

BEDOUIN SOUNDCLASH have performed all around the world sharing their innovative, special blend of reggae, rock, punk and soul. The Toronto-based, Juno award-winning band will bring their sounds to the UK this May in support of the physical release of their fourth full-length album, LIGHT THE HORIZON, out 23rd May, recorded via the band’s own label Pirates Blend Records.

BEDOUIN SOUNDCLASH--Jay Malinowski (vocals, guitar), Eon Sinclair (bass) and Sekou Lumumba (drums)--recorded LIGHT THE HORIZON in Philadelphia with famed DJ/producer King Britt. On tracks such as “A Chance of Rain” and the album’s first single “Mountain Top,” longtime fans will hear the expected syncopated island beat but this time supplemented by that seductively lazy delivery and some gorgeously brash, brassy horns for added soul. There’s the latest single, anthemic, yet melodically grounded “Elongo” and the monumental “Brutal Hearts,” a devastatingly gorgeous duet between Malinowski and 20-year-old soul chanteuse Beatrice Martin (aka Coeur de pirate) with string arrangements by the legendary friend to Philadelphia soul Larry Gold.

"This record is really looking forward," says vocalist Jay Malinowski. "It’s from the point where we don’t have any baggage from the past. We’re just genuinely in the moment with this record, for the first time in a long time." Soundclash co-founder and bassist Eon Sinclair agrees. "It’s a really optimistic and hopeful record," he says. "That’s been said about some of the stuff we’ve done in the past, but this time we’re just feeling more self-assured and more confident in doing what it is that we do in Bedouin Soundclash. It’s positive and optimistic and forward-looking."
