The Prolific has released the first single from its upcoming album Social Movement. "Take Me Down (Lucy)" showcases the four-piece group's talent and dedication to a solid studio recording (mixed by Chris Cosgrove), with a pleasantly surprising horn section that propels the song forward. Jesse Thompson puts her soulful vocal pipes on display, accompanied by three musicians who have a clear awareness of one another's abilities: Joshua Veach, Walt Powell and Stephanie Williams have collaborated  in other projects since 2005. Veach's crunchy guitar riffs provide an abrasive but complementary counterpoint to Powell's smooth, jazzy bass lines and Williams' tight, compelling beats.

We look forward to hearing more from The Prolific when its album drops in late September or October.
