AbNe It's interesting to see how the band has subtly moved their sound on since 'Chequered Thoughts', their debut when they were known as Funkommunity. Initially 'Shifting' was not my favourite but it has now taken over my brain... Favorite track: Shifting.

Brian Franklin I love the sound achieved here through their instrumental choices. Each track is such a different experience. With the lead's beautiful voice and well-written lyrics this makes for an excellent album. Favorite track: Desire.

Always knew that eventually I’d have to reach back there again Long time and past forgotten Still whispering in the wind I call on my dragonfly Hover still mid-air, just breathe Four winds up strong When the light hits right I know My unlocking begins I call on my dragonfly And in my water garden He is there It’s time! I call on my dragonfly My mirror brother, my mirror brother dragonfly I call on my dragonfly (call) on you brother

Freeloadoubt 03:33
Without a name and no age and no way to know how to get around Don't check your pockets, you got no money Just hypothetically, what would you do? Would you take it as a chance to start again? You could change your name, change your age You could be ten years younger, if it was believable, I think you could get away with it Don’t look in the mirror Just keep on playing along, playing along, playing along Hush You doubt much Just let me be For a minute No I don't wanna think about it Just let me be If you let the doubt creep in Its gonna make itself at home and you dont want that no (What's that freeloading on my mind) And if you let the doubt creep in you’re as good as sold What a waste of something beautiful (Stop that freeloading on my mind) But you can make it right! I believe!

Teacups 03:26
Slow electricity drank from teacups He’s been out morphing and talking money first foremost and last I got to tell him He dont owe me nothing but same goes in reverse You can never really know when they don't know know know better Smooth clarity drank from teacups Set your propellers up Jacobs ladder just to try find our way again Ongoing distraction Keeps on running in circles from his past I got to tell him He dont owe me nothing You can never really know when they don't know no better

Te Kano 07:10
They don’t know What goes on They don't ask right left the magic out the question Take it all with a grain of salt Foot stuck in the fault tripped the line and got a lesson Oh but you can figure it out out along the way’

I push and shove You hold me down with tough love and then I nearly give up to you Then I regain all of my senses You got the secret weapon baby Gotta promise not to fuck me up I’m on to you Its not enough for me to go on Gotta keep it real Gotta treat this feel with love With love You got the secret weapon baby Gotta promise not to fuck me up I should have lied oh but I'm so damn stubborn but I can make my mind up real soon Oh boy now we’re taking this real deep and I can tell i'm not gonna get no sleep and thats just fine, thats ok with me (oh you got me again) Treat the feel It’s not enough for me to go on Gotta keep it real Gotta treat this feel with love With love You got the secret weapon baby Gotta promise not to fuck me up

Cherished 01:51
The mountain and the sea A house and a reservoir of dreams where you speak And I know that she runs They’re tired in the drought and it’s dry crevice of the mouth but it has tricked them all You see it keeps her going The mountain and the sea A house and a reservoir of dreams where you speak

Dose 03:22
He sounds obsidian in his voice So glass-like So last night Obsidian Oh I slip right off of his voice So glass-like So last night Now nobody can come close if that sound don’t got that dose He sounds obsidian in his voice So glass-like So last night Obsidian Oh I slip right off of his voice So glass-glike So last night

Desire 06:29
They all want something Do whatever it takes In shameless ways It is what it is (All they want) Is to put their name on it (All they need) Is to feel they own it (So they can) Do what they want with it and lock it up (You know you can’t see past your own desire) No they can't see past their own desire No they can't see beyond their own desire They all want something Do whatever it takes In shameless ways It is what it is

Shifting 04:53
I feel a shifting in the sight of things Honest daylight on my skin is the surest thing, the surest thing to me It seems the surest thing in the world in all this unpredictability Shifting You go about your day the way only you can and I see so many things could be problem tomorrow but what do you care I get the impression the world in their heads isn’t to share I got to redirect my eyes Don’t wanna lose daylight Shifting

about

SORCERESS (formerly known as Funkommunity) is a 5-piece band from New Zealand. Their 2011 debut album Chequered Thoughts received worldwide acclaim and saw the band tour Europe and Japan the following year. Fast forward to 2014, and the band announced a new name: SORCERESS and a new studio album: DOSE.

While previous works were influenced by J Dilla-inspired future soul and R&B, the new album sees their sound evolve, fusing elements of Deep Electronic Soul, Afrobeat, and Dance Music. DOSE retains their distinctive sonic texture, but also projects more movement while going deeper into the source of the music. Experienced in headphones or a club/festival context, Sorceress traverses the boundaries between audio intimacy and the bass driven rhythms of the dancefloor.

The creative duo at the core of Sorceress is producer/band leader Isaac Aesili and vocalist Rachel Fraser. Isaac Aesili's production provides a diverse and sonically rich soundscape from which the charismatic vocals of Rachel Fraser weave through both light and dark lyrical themes. Crafted over the period of a year, the album includes collaboration with Sorceress' guitarist Daniel Ryland. Other musicians involved in the sessions include fellow Kiwis Julien Dyne, Marika Hodgson, Tom Broome, Jonathan Crayford, Steph Brown and Cam Allen.
