Balades Sonores présente Pink Shabab en showcase!
Pink Shabab is the heartbreak funk-pop solo project of London musician Joseph Carvell. After years as a trusted bass player for the likes of Laetitia Sadier, Marker Starling, Baby Dee, Malphino and many more bands, Pink Shabab was born. After a few demos and concerts, an invitation came from Emma ‘Astrobal’ Mario to the South of France to record a debut album. 2019’s ‘Ema by the Sea’ released on Berlin label Karaoke Kalk.
‘Groovy and laid-back, danceable and intimate, the minimalist structures of Carvell’s songwriting open up a lot of space and make room for plenty of surprises along the way. ‘ – Forced Exposure
Since then Pink Shabab has performed in UK, France, Switzerland, Belgium, even toured in Taiwan and recorded two more albums with the same producer, the first – ‘Never Stopped Loving You’ released in February 2022.
‘It’s a feel-good album in the tradition of the best sad disco songs, balancing upbeat rhythms with matters of burden and loss.’ – The Letter
