1881âs got this sound that you canât put your finger on but you can move your body to. Then thereâs introspective, soulful vocals and lyrics with a unique approach that helps to set 1881 apart from bands that may somehow sneak into 1881âs self-proclaimed genre: Electro-Funk-Rock. Instrumentally, the band alludes to the adroit yet detached vocals and beats of Soul Coughing, the smoky jazz gothicity that is Morphine, and the textured breaks and sound collages of DJ Shadow. In 1881, there are beats, synth, guitar and sax contrasting and complimenting, while the lyrics paint personal and social critiques and empowerment.
