Independent Artist Of The Week: The Possé
September 26th 2016
Tanya Bonnie Rae
The Possé are an elastic supergroup with their own funk-filled take on boogie. Inspired by the Philly soul studio greats and Patrick Adams’ pioneering New York disco, The Possé consists of core members Andrew Elston (Physique/Toni Toni Lee/Catcall) and Ross Ferraro. From there, the collective often expands and retracts with additional members Jarrol Renaud, Michael Di Francesco (Touch Sensitive), NZ jazz keys prodigy Andrew Bruce and Harry Sutherland.
Since forming at the beginning of 2016, The Possé have already catapulted into Sydney’s live music scene – supporting No Zu on their Afterlife tour and selling out a Vivid residency at Cake Wines Cellar Door.
Recently signing with forward-thinking Aussie label Plastic World, things are only just warming up for The Possé. Their funk and disco infused number ‘MS-DOS’ has just been released on Plastic World: Volume 1. It’s a relentless full-band house jam that’s sure to get you head-bopping and foot-tapping.
