South African underdogs Manuvah to Land forward their music revolution with ”Got This Feeling” EP
”When it comes to music, we have the freedom to express ourselves.”
Inspired by the current worldwide pandemic, Kwa-Zulu Natal rock-reggae act Manuvah to Land is back with new music to keep our spirits high. The boys from the sleepy surf-loving town Warner Beach on the South Coast have just announced their second release; A six-track EP ‘Got This Feeling’.
After supporting Jeremy Loops, BOO, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Finley Quay and Donovan Frankerieter when they toured in Durban, ‘Got This Feeling’ is the follow-up EP after their well-received debut album ‘Easy Living’ from 2010.
The ‘Easy Living’ elements from the first album are still celebrated for its true and unique sound. With the new offering, they hope it is enjoyed in the same way. The EP showcases their diverse range of musical influences and highlights the progression of our craft.
The lead single ‘Got This Feeling’ from the EP is an introspective song written by lead vocalist Jason Graham about going with your gut and figuring things out you should have been taught on the fly. Jason was inspired to write this song while thinking about life and having the attitude of just getting on with things and doing what you gotta do to survive. He wanted to inspire others to have that positive feeling each day, whatever that feeling is.
