As a precursor to their debut album in the fall of 2016, ROBB will release their second EP “Heat” in April. The four songs represent the consequent further development of the previous ROBB-sounds: Progressive soul with strong electrofunk
and R&B influences. Singer Robert Summerfield’s American background, with roots in Chicago and Michigan, is blended with a tangibly European style. As a consequence, ROBB’s music is permeated by smooth, soulful vocals, acting in contrast
jazzy sound structures, while enjoying songs that remain within the immanent cloak of danceable pop music. That the five musicians, who became acquainted in their adopted home of Vienna, are able to perform in varying directions, is evidenced by last year’s tour with UK Soul-Act KWABS and Electronic Soul-Duo HONNE, Nova Jazz Appearance before CHIC featuring Nile Rodgers, as well as other shows like the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg. The band has the potential to perform in several contexts – thus, in addition to the German speaking area, the newcomers have already been featured in various international media formats, including placements on a number of hype-machine blogs and playlists.
