‘A Room With A Zoo’ is the new single from Manchester Soul collective The Winachi Tribe, a band that are firmly on the ascendant.
This trajectory is marked by the ten minute short film which accompanies their latest release, a collaboration between the band and California-based Mancunian filmmaker Trevor Miller. The film depicts an epic and mystical journey, where a young singer imbibes the hallucinogen ‘Ayahuasca’ and is transported into the desert to battle his personal demons, only to be rescued by a white-suited Angel portrayed by international Tommy Flanagan, star of Sons Of Anarchy and Peaky Blinders.
The film was born during a brief conversation between The Winachi Tribe’s manager Harry Bridgen and his friend Tommy Flanagan.
The Winachi Tribe are sonic soul collective who adhere to no boundaries or formulas, either musically or culturally. Lyrically explosive, musically diverse, the Electro Funk hybrid are an exceptional band of musicians and producers who have collaborated and toured with artists as diverse as Ian Brown to Danny Saber.
LA Times“We are on the edge of a hybrid soul/northern soul explosion. I think it will, for want of a better word, be the new punk. The Winachi Tribe’s tune fits into the picture perfectly. Bring it on!”
