This Californian four-piece are made up of Sandra Lawson-Ndu, Derek Barber, Geneva Harrison and Doug Stuart, and their sound is built upon loosely structured songs which are all bound together by heavy, dynamic percussion and well structured, soulful arrangements. Playing their music is like drawing back the curtains on a bright summers day, it fills the room with sunshine!
Last June saw the release of their EP, ‘Hyperlust’ (which you can check out on my page here) and yesterday the band shared brand new single, ‘Spec and Bubble.’ This radiant track floats on a lightweight rhythm of handclaps and loose beats, led by the smooth and lustrous vocals of frontwoman Sandra Lawson-Ndu who, in an interview with The FADER, explains how the new song is about “trying to understand how to truly learn about someone who you love,” also adding, “When I started writing this song, it came from feeling exhausted and swept up by the misunderstandings in my relationships, and desperately trying not to lose sight of the beautiful pieces that connect us. Lyrically it’s a back and forth between questioning what’s good, and trusting what’s good. I eventually land in ‘we are ok.’ Part hopeful mantra, part assurance.”
Available now, ‘Spec and Bubble’ can be ordered from their Bandcamp page here.
