“virtuoso…. will revive classicists and weary clubbers alike” (Mojo)

Hailing from the sun-drenched Mediterranean island of Sicily, vocalist, MC and producer Davide Shorty (3rd place on X Factor Italia 2015) had a vision to bring back the love. Gathering a tight knit family of similarly soul-centric musicians from his homeland, along with superbly poised Parisian co-vocalist Leslie Phillips, they formed Retrospective For Love London-side and a new eclectic musical outfit was born, weaving together undeniable, infectious melodies stretching across the stratosphere of hip-Hop, soul, and jazz styles, whilst adding a little 21st century electronic mastery into the mix.

“laid-back, sexy…. sweetly satisfying” (Echoes)

“lush, laid back psychedelic soul combo… I loved it” (Hifi)


Bringing a laid back, comfortable cool to the stage, live performances reach out and grab the spirit – with a dynamism and natural ear for dance floor groove sitting alongside classic romanticism contained in their self-released debut EP – Retrospective For Love EP (available on most digital stores). RFL have supported artists such as neo soul pioneer Bilal, rising stars José James, Low Leaf, Jordan Rakei, Quantic and played European festivals such as Valley Fest (UK) Hockley Hustle (UK), Soundwave Croatia and Pas De Trai (Sicily)

The new album, Random Activities of a Heart, will come out on Wormfood in March 2017, with a wide press, online and radio campaign from 9PR and Nurture Music. Please email for private links to the new album.
