So far in 2014, it has been very, very rare that a new album has truly surprised me. I can barely count them one one hand. This week’s song comes from one of those rare albums. The album, Kara, comes from a London-based duo by the name of We Are Shining. This duo blurs the lines of multiple genres with aggressive abandon. From Jimi Hendrix inspired rock to Sly Stone Inspired Soul & Funk to elements of afrobeat and electronic music, We Are Shining have created a sonic masterpiece with their debut album, The duo has even garnered the attention of a Kanye West. Their song “Stagedive” does a fantastic job of illustrating just that and it is Rhythm Lab Radio’s song of the Week.
Take a listen to the song in the player above, and check out We Are Shining's videos of other tracks from the album Kara below.
