Filewile — On The Run feat. Pedro Da Silva Pinto
Filewile clearly had an excellent time touring South Africa for the «Blueskywell» album release last winter. They felt well at home inside the dancehalls of Jo’burg, Cape Town, Dar Es Salaam and Maputo. As Filewile are not a band drawn to hanging out on the beach for long, but always eager to collaborate on yet another dubbed out venture, the follow up to the last single «Number One Kid» was bound to happen: A sun trenched Reggae tune full of soul and troubled lyrics in the finest conscious Reggae tradition. Uncertain if the trouble comes from a torn soul, torn country or both, «On the Run» tells of broken hearts and broken homes in troubled times. Hailing from Mozambique, singer Pedro Da Silva Pinto (frontman to the band 340ml) masters a silken voice that mingles beautifully with Filewile’s knee deep Reggae and Joy Frempong’s floating backing vocals. The b-side carries a classic Dub version of the same tune. Heavy steppin’ up in this!
