Hot on the heels of ‘HUMBLE’, live electronic collective Girls of the Internet continue their winning formula of forward-thinking club tracks laced with a dose of future facing soul for the second single from their forthcoming album ’SYRUP’.
‘U Already Know’, invites NYC based rising star Jitwam to guest with the enigmatic troupe. Exuding a psychedelic soulfulness through his vocals, he brings a certified, yet hazy, swagger to the track. Capturing the bands live nature, chunky bass, crunched up percussion, thumping kicks and resonating chords blend with elasticated synths and tactile sounds that spring through the brain. As potent storming the clubs, as it will be taking over the radio waves.
On the flip side, star of recent Viceland documentary ‘My House’ and LGBTQ+ icon; Ballroom MC Princess Precious hits with an evocative and in-your-face set of vocals on ‘Your Love’. Striding side by side with rugged, shuffling live percussion, stuttering acid synthlines and a low slung bass - it’s a dress-to-sweat jackin groove, bringing an infectious underground punch that screams sexuality.
Supersonic spins and disco-looping contortions are on full show for the ‘Sports Mix’ - pushing the energy into overdrive for a Chicago-flavoured, house heater. Filtered sax funk, jazzy keys and galvanising drums compliment the brazen tones of Princess Precious in this fierce, voguing workout.
‘U Already Know’ showcases Girls Of The Internet’s ability to seamlessly blend genres, weaving them into creative tracks that strive to go against the norm.
