Coming from Pennsylvannia, TRiBE are a 6 piece band dropping some quintessential soulful/funky/ neo soul induced vibes. The band has been around since 2018 but it’s only in 2021 they finally drop their debut album Language.
Three years before a debut album perhaps seems long but much of those three years have been spent hitting the live circuit around Northeast US. Not that we have evidence of this but perhaps they used that time to test some of the numbers from their album.
While we are here to review their sixth single, Beauty rather than the whole album have to say that the whole ten-track album is a solid debut filled (we feel) ostensibly with some funky edged bangers.
So to the luscious current single veering into neo soul vibes-this could easily be a track from the Maxwell catalogue of bangers. Lyrically it’s a fairly deep offering discussing the “inevitable decay of anything beautiful” encapsulated in the soulful lament of the main singer.
Thankfully Beauty will remain ‘beautiful’.
