'Upgrade' by TABOU

'Upgrade' promo...

Exclusive TABOU Soho Radio interview.

TABOU on Soho Radio.

Fresh from their gig in Southend, Essex on Friday - The TABOU boys had to race against time and beat the traffic in order to get to London for an appearance on Soho Radio. 

Exclusive interview for latest single 'Upgrade'

With their first official video for latest single 'Upgrade' being due for release shortly - Essex and London band TABOU join Eddy Temple Morris and lovely producer Sam at the Soho Radio studio HQ in ... erm... well... Soho, London. 

Blessed by thy name

When the man who discovered acts such as Fenech Soler, 2ManyDJs,  Pendulum and Kasabian tells the band you manage that he has fallen in love with their music, jams with their vibe and cannot wait to watch them play a huge festival as the sun goes down... it's hard not to feel a sense of pride. 

Listen in from 1h 45m to hear TABOUs debut track 'Honey', the lads discuss musical influences, catch laughs and jokes and drop latest track 'Upgrade' live on air.


Massive thanks and huge love to Eddy Temple Morris, producer Sam, Soho Radio London and The Universe for making this happen. 


The TABOU boys loved their session at the Broomcupboard Studios with Rees whilst filming the live video for 'Honey' and took the time to fire off this cover of Kwabs massive track 'My Own'. 

Thank you also to Mike at Carousel for his skills in filming, editing and producing.

Review: Music Crowns: 

 Their debut single ‘Honey‘ is sure to leave a sweet taste in your mouth. A future classic in the making, the track delivers all the band’s trademark charm. Like cruising the streets in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, ‘Honey’ is an electrifying throwback with a few new tricks up its sleeve. From its straight off the bat, 80’s inspired disco beat, to its refreshing half-time chorus, TABOU’s debut is an unforgettably strong introduction. 


TABOUs debut track 'Honey' exceeded all expectations - over 40k streams on Soundcloud in no time at all, live video for the same track clocked up over 35k view on Music Crowns platform in under a week. Regularly featured on BBC Introducing in Essex - Played on BBC Radio 1 - Celebrity fans and some exciting plans for the future.

*** TABOU are definitely ones to watch.
