Big Words – Souljam (Single Review)

The Melbourne-based genre colliding quintet, Big Words are back with a brand new single. The funky title of Souljam highlights once again how the band seamlessly combines hip hop with element of soul and R&B and it is the follow single to Big Words’ debut single The Answer.

Big Words

Souljam is taken from the band’s forthcoming EP. The track combines a blend of genres to create a beautifully soulful, nostalgic early 90s hip hop inspired sound – the sound that is fast becoming synonymous with Big Words. Vocalists Kieran Lee and Will Scullin come together again vocally on the track to combine dreamy, melodic vocals with a laid back hip hop flow.

Souljam is full of soulful instrumentation and an effortlessly textured use of keys and percussion. The dual vocal delivery has a blues undertone with a punctuated inclusion of hip hop. The harmonies that arise between Lee and Scullin on the track are pure ear candy as a result. The real charm of the track however, is that it evokes a distinct feeling of comfort.


Big Words


Big Words are nothing if not a sleek and sexy quintet who has set themselves apart on the musical landscape. There is a quiet confidence on Souljam, as if the quintet is showing the world what they have – letting the music do the talking. More to the point, Big Words are the missing part of the puzzle when it comes to the Melbourne music scene.
