The Invisible – Save You

London trio The Invisible have released their new album Patience on Ninja Tune. Formed in 2006, the group are refreshingly elusive when it comes to pinning them to one genre just as their name suggests, with their music transcending funk, electro-pop and Afro-beat.

The band themselves describe their style as ‘experimental genre-spanning  spacepop’, so it’s open to perception. Regardless, they have the acclaim of the critics after a Mercury Prize nomination in 2009 for their self-titled first album.

The second track of the new album, Save You, is a funky foray into RnB centred around the vocal diversity of singer and guitarist Dave Okumu. As well as harmonising with his bandmates Tom Herbert and Leo Taylor, Okumu raps over the drums and bass line to give the song a nicely rounded sound.
