about

The Groove Merchants second studio album, Take It, delivers a hard-hitting punch while simultaneously taking its listeners on a journey that encompasses many different atmospheres. The opening track, Take It If You Want It, kicks off the record with a driving rhythm and a smokin’ horn section, preparing the listener to get on board for a full throttle ride. The albums first single, Hold Your Hand, is more reminiscent of Motown or Otis Redding with shades of The Who. Moving to a different vibe later in the album, the band gets straight up funky with the near 7 minute jam, The Ride. Ending the record is the adventurous track, Walking Shoes, the bands first studio instrumental. The Groove Merchants continue to drive home and sharpen their familiar turf of breaking-point, intense rock while constantly trying to push themselves artistically.
