When I was at school ‘strides’ were what everyone called their trousers, as in – ‘liking the strides mate.’ At least, that was if they were drainpipes – if you were wearing anything that had the slightest bit of flap in it you were clearly some sort of hippie – why else would you be wearing flares? In the intervening years a ten-piece reggae, jazz and hip-hop outfit from straight outta Sydney have reclaimed (you’ll see what I did there in a minute) the term ‘the strides’ as their band name. Now the band are on the verge of releasing their second LP Reclamation on Italy’s Record Kicks label. As a promo you can cop the title track for free via the band’s page on the Record Kicks site HERE it’s on an edgy jazz-tinged, hip-hop number that, if you’re feeling it, might well have you commenting, ‘yeah, liking The Strides.’
