The Winachi Tribe Louder Than War David Gleave

The Winachi Tribe are the six-piece electro funk and soul collective who for the past 18 months have been pushing the boundaries both musically and culturally to deliver a sound, a style and performance very unique and special. They are taking time out from creating new music in the studio to speak with Louder Than War in our special video interview. 

The Winachi Tribe’s 2015 saw the band on tour around the UK with notable performances including the Shiiine Weekender at which they shared the billing with Stereo Mc’s, The Farm and the Happy Mondays among others. They releases the Time For Love EP which proved not only popular with their fan’s and becoming an instant live favorite it also attracted the positive attention of music critics and BBC Radio airplay.

This spring and summer has seen The Winachi Tribe busy in the studio recording new material for their first album, which they have been doing so, under the working title A Room with a Zoo: this may go some way to explain why there has been not only elephant but also goat samples hear there recently.

The Winachi Tribe kindly invited Louder Than War along to the studio’s exclusively allowing David Gleave to shoot some fresh shots of the band and RKid Media to capture some Winachi Tribe studio action as well as taking the time for a chat between rehearsals.
