RCM favourite Iraina Mancini returns with her third single ‘Do It’ (You Stole The Rhythm) a joyously, hazy slice of psychedelic pop that draws on an era when Andrew Wetherall was at his knob-twiddling best for Primal Scream.
Iraina Mancini – Do It (You Stole The Rhythm)
Over the last 18 months, our submissions inbox has been flooded with introspective tales of lock-down woe but with the world beginning to truly open up, it feels fitting that we’ve started to receive unification anthems. With the release of her new single ‘Do It’ (You Stole The Rhythm) Iraina Mancini has set the bar high.
‘Do It’ talks to us in a way that only music can. This is a reconnection anthem for music lovers who can relate to that moment when music makes you feel truly alive. By drawing inspiration from Primal Scream era ‘Loaded’ Iraina has main-lined euphoria into our hearts and our ears. This is utterly joyous.
The Primal Scream link doesn’t end there. Do It (You Stole The Rhythm) was produced by Iraina’s now accustomed co-collaborator Jagz Kooner, whose own work with Primal Scream equally holds a cherished place in our record collection.
Did you know… Jagz’s remix of “My Beautiful Friend” from The Charlatans is also said to have inspired Eddy Temple-Morris to start his now legendary XFM ‘Remix’ show. There was a time where this was essential listening! Mini-disc mix-tape anyone?! Jagz Kooner and Andrew Weatherall then united as part of Sabres of Paradise.
Talking about the track Iraina explains…
“I wrote this about that feeling of pure joy when you are surrounded by people you care about and there is music, sunshine, laughter and great energy. There is almost magic in the air when all those things are combined, an electricity that makes you feel truly alive. I tried to capture that in this song as I thought now more than ever we are craving togetherness and joy.”
