The delightful Fair Ohs release their second full length, Jungle Cats on 28th May and just for added excitement they will be touring in June including a headline show at London's Lexington on 18th June.
 
And just to get you in the mood, why not watch their video for  ‘Ya Mustafa’ again. 
 

Based on an Arabic/French hit of the same name from the 1950s and inspired by West African harp music (naturally), The Eagles and the original ‘Ya Mustafa’, who was, rather obviously, a big hit with singer Eddy’s grandmother.  It's all about spreading the love. 
 
The video itself is a about the beautiful maternal potential of a stunningly ripped man. Seriously, this is a hot bod. There’s a kicker here, with the Athena man/baby poster acting as inspiration.
The fearsome threesome have returned with an enigmatic new opus by the name of Jungle Cats. A heat-soaked traipse through the psychedelic desert of your twenties, filled with voodoo funk grooves, solos like a thousand snakes in heat, bass-lines that could hypnotise wild beasts and enough hooks to open an abattoir. 

Inspired by trips to North Africa, the lost music of forgotten tribes, San Francisco psych, James Brown’s unequalled dedication to the Holy Groove and Carlos f**kin’ Santana; Jungle Cats is a record to seduce to.
Fair Ohs formed four years ago in a haze of beer-soaked free love party-vibes. Eddy, Joe and Matt came together like young romantics, vowing to show everyone the meaning of true love. The years that followed the consummation of their musical marriage on that hot summer’s day saw them release a series of 7″ singles and cassettes – some shared with the likes of Women, Male Bonding, and Cold Pumas – that made people like Pitchfork say “hey, these guys are A-OK!”. But no one was prepared for the earth shattering power of debut album Everything Is Dancing. A record so inventive and hip-shakingly awesome that fans and critics alike regularly begged them for locks of hair, sweat-drenched t-shirts and babies. But Fair Ohs gave them nothing, the music was the gift they shared, not their love. Everything Is Dancing was the sound of East African guitar music colliding with Indian ragas and Cuban rhythms in the hands of three shirtless London punk virtuosos. And it was rad.
 
They toured after that, playing to the braying masses. All furious and drunk and hypnotic, they bewitched Europe and Great Britain, casting their magical musical spell in the tiniest of dives and the most sun soaked of festivals. But then they rested, and waited, and created.
 
Setting the ‘desert vibe’ tone from opener Green Apple Milk – full of crackling, dusty Ethiopian jazz samples and three-part saxophone harmonies that eventually descend into a slow and psychedelic Santana and Earth-inspired desert trip – and featuring 2012’s ‘Salt Flats’ albeit a new far jazzier version of the hit flexi single - this is a record to be naked to…. A record to dance all night with your crush to…. An endless fiesta that Lionel Richie promised, but never delivered. 
 
In short, it is rad.
Praise for 'Everything is Dancing'
