Press Release :
"Nao Posso Te Levar A Serio" is the debut single from Saravah Soul on Tru Thoughts, and it packs a punch from the outset. The title translates into English as "I Can’t Take You Seriously." The lyrics, in Portuguese, give a girl a good ticking off for playing games which Brazilian frontman and lyricist, Otto Nascarella, quite frankly can’t be doing with.

A half-Brazilian, half-British outfit singing in both English and Portuguese, Saravah Soul’s exciting, original sound has exploded out of London’s cultural melting pot to create this tasty fusion of Raw, Afro-Brazilian Funk. The hi-energy brass of the intro to "Nao Posso Te Levar A Serio", with guitar bubbling underneath, is pure funk. Consistently exciting percussion from Jack Yglesias underpins this track and announces a catchy, satisfying chorus.

The B side to this single is an exclusive instrumental version of the electrifying album cut "Supersossego". Bringing on the sound of Rio Carnival, this is a dancefloor filler in waiting. The track starts out as a mean dose of stripped-down funk and stealthily evolves over the course of an exhilarating five minutes, to hit you unexpectedly with a raucous samba batacuda bomb to which staying still is not an option.

Both tracks on this 7" announce Saravah Soul’s arrival as ‘ones to watch’ and provide a tantalising snapshot of what to expect from this varied and vibrant band’s forthcoming album on Tru Thoughts .
