Joel Sarakula
'The new album The Imposter is dreamy and Bowie-esque… It's a really engaging and adventurous record', Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music (2015)…
'I love this actually. It's like modern Northern Soul, it's what it should sound like: gets under the skin, refuses to budge', Craig Charles BBC 6 Music (2015)
Joel Sarakula is an AUS/UK artist who writes, produces and sings soulful pop, gazing out at his 60's and 70's tinged world through vintage glasses… imagine Ray Manzarek fronting a 70s soul band. Born in Sydney and now based in London, his current album THE IMPOSTER has racked up generous plays across BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 and has been play-listed on national radio in Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium and Italy. He is a fixture on the festival and club circuit in the UK, Europe and Australia, including appearances at SXSW, Scala London, The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Primavera, V-ROX Vladivostok and Reeperbahn Festival Hamburg. Sarakula is a songwriter who has travelled the world in search of his muse, experiencing everything from being the victim of Caribbean carjackings to performing in the remote fishing villages of Norway, via the dive bars of Europe and the US. It was the hodge-podge musical tapestry of England’s capital that finally drew him to a settling point.
With personal tastes that span from the more avant-garde to soul and pop greats like Sly Stone, Todd Rundgren and Elvis Costello, there are clear nods to contemporaries like Beck, Unkown Mortal Orchestra and Erland Øye in terms of ambition and style.
His previous single Northern Soul racked up 150,000 views within the first few months of it's online release and a limited edition 7" release by mod and soul specialists Heavy Soul Records (UK) — Sarakula has definitely touched more than a few Northern Souls.
Both songs are from The Imposter, where Sarakula lovingly indulges his late 60sand early 70s references while executing them with a colder, contemporary vision. Ever the internationalist, Sarakula recorded The Imposter in studios spread across London, Berlin and Sydney with a host of his musical comrades appearing on the record. It's a fitting album title for a man unafraid of playing his various roles as singer, artist, writer and producer. Joel Sarakula is THE IMPOSTER.
