In case you’re wondering, Nine Sparks Riots isn’t a punk band.
Nine Sparks Riots is Swedish trombonist, Kristian Persson’s Jazz band, and his new single – Elevation is a soulful testimony to making the most of life.
“I was quite high on life when I wrote the song, so it’s basically about appreciating and making the most of our short time here on earth. And, be sure to leave it a little bit better than when we got here” says Kristian.
Elevation features the talented Swedish soul/jazz singer Graciela Chin A Loi, who recently released her debut single – A Single Thing.
“When I started working on the song and asked Graciela to feature, we were only friends. When we recorded the song, we were a couple and lived together, and now on the day of the release, we’re engaged and expecting a baby… So some of the lines are dedicated to the next generation:
“Let’s elevate to good and fun, let’s smile and laugh and sing along, let’s plant the seed for peace and sun, let’s teach our young that all are one”
The combination is a delightful fusion of hip-hop, jazz and soul, and can officially be called baby-making music!
