The new poster boys of hype have their debut full length coming out next week on XL Recordings, but is there substance behind all of the buzz?
In one word I say YES. Crafting afrobeat pop gems in the vein of Paul Simon’s “Graceland”, they are a truly fresh sound in the ever tiring music world. Who knew that 4 Columbia University Grads could craft such great tunes? With 1 Ep “Self titled” and a Single “Mansard Roof” under their belt to date, they have created a rabid fan base (including myself) with minimal touring and without full length to boot. Look for their Full Length “Self Titled” out next Tuesday on XL Recordings.
