Creative lead of Leicester’s biggest band, Serge Pizzorno decided that when Kasabian went on a short hiatus he’d pour his energy into a new outlet. Enter, The S.L.P. Those dreamy, ambient elements that had worked their way onto Kasabian’s For Crying Out Loud and 48:13 are here in all their glory, amped up and refined into a genre-busting collecting of songs.

Nobody Else combines jazz piano with house beats for a real blue sky thinking song. Favourites, featuring Little Simz, is the most attitude we see from The S.L.P; Little Simz’s sharp vocals bounce off Pizzorno’s with confrontational energy. Kasabian fans should be delighted at this extension of Serge’s personality. But most importantly, those completely unfamiliar with his band should be equally as enthralled by this highly original exploration of music.
