About this Track

"“The Slip” by The Burroughs is a deep funk groove inspired by The Godfather of Soul himself, James Brown. The band’s four-piece horn section is showcased throughout the tune in tight hits and punchy lines. The lyrics tell a tongue-in-cheek story of dodging the pressures of modern life, where everyone sometimes wishes they could “slip” out of their obligations. Johnny “RedBird” Burroughs embraces his frontman energy as a natural storyteller as his narrative is enhanced by the group’s full-bodied horn section.
