Strangelove – Purple
It’s always nice to get sent a new release from a group you’ve not heard of and it actually lives up to the press release.
Strangelove are a three-man group from London who mix up hip hop, electronics, jazz, and more to create a dark, moody, surreal sound.
On first listen, the group sound familiar to the likes of The 3 Owls, High Focus, Jehst etc, but with deeper listening you hear their sound strays further from the hip hop norms compared to their other UK counter parts. It’s good to hear new groups out their not afraid to push the boundaries and try new things within this thing we call hip hop.
The “Purple” EP is available now as a free download from their bandcamp page, check out the excellent art work too!
