B:Music and PRS Foundation present a collaboration between nu-jazz duo BIGHEADMODE (Robbie & Ewan Moore) and Plumm, a distinguished multi-instrumentalist bandleader based in South London. Together, they have sculpted a captivating suite inspired by the legendary Midlands band, Black Sabbath.

The PRS Foundation & B:Music Commission is a unique funded talent development opportunity for Midlands based music creators to develop a new piece of collaborative work.

The project aims to showcase two different styles of music coming together, allowing two different audiences to interact and explore sounds they may normally not encounter in a single performance.

B:Music is delighted to showcase their new video: watch it below.

BIGHEADMODE describe their sound as “1970’s celestial, jazz fusion sounding, groove laced jam, reminiscent of Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi with flashes of J Dilla and Kruangbin.” The brothers share an abundance of musical influences that make their style tightly knit. Their sound is groove focused, but intertwined around rich analogue instruments and ethereal glitchy synthesised electronics.

Plumm, fiercely proud of her Welsh heritage, creates mood driven soundscapes through her rich vocals to create a sound unlike any other. Using an eclectic range of sounds, both from instruments and vocally, Plumm is inspired by the late greats of David Bowie, Led Zeppelin and Janis Joplin, whose live shows are creating a buzz across the scene. Whether as a full force eclectic rock band or a one-woman vocal pedal show, Plumm’s music has real grit and soul.

This seamless fusion intertwines BIGHEADMODE's ethereal, jazz-infused grooves reminiscent of Herbie Hancock's Mwandishi, with echoes of J Dilla and Kruangbin, alongside Plumm's soulful, atmospheric soundscapes inspired by musical luminaries like David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, and Janis Joplin.

Departing from conventional cover projects, the endeavor captures the essence and vitality of Black Sabbath's style through original compositions. The suite features electronic elements, improvisation, and unique arrangements of select Black Sabbath tracks, including Paranoid, War Pigs, and Fairies Wear Boots, infused with a distinct, edgy, and dynamic interpretation.

This musical journey signifies a remarkable exploration into uncharted territories while paying homage to the enduring legacy of Black Sabbath.
