Meet Milwaukee’s newest band – For The Culture.  Formed by Foreign Good’s synth player Quinten Farr, the band fuses Rock and Neo Soul into a unique sound. For The Culture full lineup consists of singer-songwriter Yasmeena, bassist Calvin Turner, guitarist Aram Feriants and drummers Jonathan Harris and Terence Pettigrew.

The group just released their debut single and video titled “Cycles.” The song reminds me of the some of the finest Neo-Soul from artists like Jill Scott, but with a dash of edginess from the guitar riffs and driving synths. The track was produced by Farr and written by vocalist Yasmeena.  According to the press release, the tune conveys a journey of toxicity, revolving patterns, and self-discovery within life and relationships.

You can check out the video below and you can see For The Culture perform live at the annual “Arte Para Todos” fundraiser this April.
