sinkane
CMJ Music Marathon alum Sinkane, aka Ahmed Gallab, is working on a new album,Mean Love, set for release on DFA and City Slang in September. And given this new single, there’s a good chance it will sound nothing like Gallab’s 2012 LP,Mars. While that album was mostly skiddish and upbeat,Hold Tight is a crippling bit of bass-heavy neo-soul, with fractured percussion and Gallab’s soft-focus, pained croon. Listen toHold Tight and check out Sinkane’s upcoming tour dates below.
