Do you like Love songs? After a lifetime spent avoiding this subject in song, Joel Sarakula finally admits that he does.
On his new album „Love Club“ Sarakula relives the golden age of Soulful and Romantic Pop music and connects it with a modern aesthetic. But Joel Sarakula is no old fashioned hippie: “Love Club is about re-framing the idea of romantic love and loss in the present, loveless age.”
Sarakula has travelled the world in search of his muse, experiencing everything from being a victim of a Caribbean carjacking to performing in the remote fishing villages of Norway, via the dive bars of Europe and the US. It was the diverse musical tapestry of England’s capital that finally drew him to a settling point, in the wake of seemingly never ending run of shows. With personal tastes that span from the more avant-garde to soul and pop greats like Sly Stone, Todd Rundgren and Hall & Oates, there are clear nods to contemporaries like Unkown Mortal Orchestra, Erlend Oye and Toro Y Moi in terms of ambition and style.
His last two albums “The Golden Age” and “The Imposter” collected strong radio plays at BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 and BBC London and playlisted nationally on radio in Germany, Benelux, Italy and Spain. He is a regular fixture on the live festival and club circuit in the UK, Europe and internationally including appearances at SXSW, Primavera Sound, Glastonbury, The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, V-ROX (Vladivostok Russia) and Reeperbahnfestival Hamburg.
