Those who know the inspirational tale will recognise Nine Sparks Riots song title – This Too Shall Pass.
In the fable, a sultan requests of King Solomon for a sentence that would always be true in good times or bad; Solomon responds, “This too will pass away‘. Whilst still in the midst of a killer pandemic we are undoubtedly living through ‘the bad times’. And Nine Sparks Riots bring the good.
Wonderfully uplifting, this jazzy instrumental-only track lifts the mood like an injection of dopamine. The trio of horns’ unites in colourful riffs and cheerful melodies almost feel out of place with modern synth-based music, and I for one am so happy it does. These funky rhythms bridge all tastes, as they intended, and find the right funky notes to free any sullen spirit.
And if this horny groove fest has you bubbling on Spotify, just check the video above!
Filmed by Isaias Chin A Loi, the three members of Nine Sparks Riots (Kristian Persson, Sebastian Ågren and Petter Olofsson) horns in hand, perform a dance-off against street dancers. The vibrant, energetic and fun video may be the most enjoyable you’ll see all year!
The band’s description says it all; ‘Whatever hardship you’re going through, remember that it’s temporary! Just like this dance battle ass whopping…’
If 2020 has any happy memories This Too Shall Pass by Nine Sparks Riots is definitely one of them.
