Album: 1989 pt 2
Kongos have an unforgettably unique sound marked by a perfect mix of acoustic and electric as well as interesting rhythms influenced by the drummers of burundi. This track leans more on their electronic side with melancholy synths and soft vocals that go from intimate and close to a towering, layered expanse. These four brothers will be releasing a new song every week until October!
