| Debut EP from Scottish hip hop trio: Alloysious born in Liberia, Kayus raised by Nigerian migrants, and G who also provides the score. Together, they croon like a left-field rock band or a 90s R&B group, rhyme like scions sent either from the D.A.I.S.Y. age or some dystopian future, and do so over production that pulls as much from ancient African tradition as it does contemporary electronic futurism. A fearless combination of beat, rap and song that moves with the unlikely grace of TV on the Radio and the jittery unease of Shabazz Palaces, at times even harking back to the subterranean soul of P.M. Dawn. Released on vinyl and tape (not CD).|
I don't know what to call the Edinburgh-based Trio's music. All three members of the group are vocalists. Crazy synths, melodies, and lo-fi drumbeats. A mix of happy yet dark quirky tunes.
