First Listen: Sans Soucis Experience – Daffodils EP
We first came across London-based Sans Soucis Experience last summer, when we discovered debut single, Someone Like You, during a late night trawl through SoundCloud. Since then, the Sans Soucis Experience has evolved drastically, transforming from a solo venture in to an eight-piece collective of musicians hailing from all over the world.
It’s not just recruitment that has kept the group busy though, they’ve also been hard at work in the studio and today the Sans Soucis Experience unveil their exciting debut EP, Daffodils, exclusively through Mahogany.
A four track effort that takes its cues, in the main, from soul, hip-hop and jazz, Daffodils is the kind of record you can easily imagine soundtracking Giles Peterson’s summer holidays. A bright, uplifting record, full of rich live instrumentation and some gorgeous harmonies, it’s helping to keep the cold at bay in Mahogany HQ today. Early standouts include Panta Rei and the record’s title track, but the EP really does need to be listened to as a whole to truly enjoy it.
