UK band PREP, craft modern soul with delicate pop sensibilities. Early tracks “Cheapest Flight” and “Sunburnt Through The Glass” turned heads with their distinct melodies and earnest vocal lines, solifying them as bona-fide ‘ones to watch’ in 2016. Prep, recently released their EP and title-track on B3SCI Records.
Comprised of a hip-hop producer, a classical composer, a house DJ, and a singer songwriter with credits including Drake, Kwabs, Foxes, Raleigh Ritchie, and Klangkarussell, PREP fuse elements of R&B, funk, and jazz into a melting pot of blissfully-styled pop.
Taking inspiration from artists like Steely Dan, Michael McDonald, and Bobby Caldwell, who used session musicians to build a rich ensemble sound, PREP have been honing their live show with an expanded 6-piece live band. Their debut show sold out within a week and they also supported Massive Attack and TV On The Radio at BST Hyde Park. The band also played a London EP release show this week @ Birthdays.
