The “Sycamore” single brings an eagerly awaited taste of new music from Space Captain and an upfront glimpse of their first full album. On this fresh new material the young Brooklyn band channel seemingly disparate genres including R&B, indie, psych rock and jazz into a stirring, progressive proposition laced with stealthily addictive hooks.
“Sycamore” tells a lyrical, folk-flavoured tale of complicated love, the lilting voice of singer and songwriter Maralisa Simmons-Cook melding with heavily effected guitars and synths alongside live and digital beats and brass flourishes. “The story is based on a tumultuous love triangle my dad was thrown into post-college”, she explains; “He told me this story one summer, behind a bar in Brooklyn called Sycamore. It’s a tale of love and betrayal, about trying to win back a lover, and the issues that arose between three best friends”. Order The single now! https://spacecaptainofficial.bandcamp.com/
Ledisi has released another dope track from her project Let Love Rule due out 9.22.17 Telling these brothers basically i’m going to need for you to have your stuff together. you got to to come with it. Ain’t no half stepping allowed.
“I was thinking about relationships,” Ledisi states. “To men, women shouldue out 9.22.17. d act like, ‘We’re independent and self-sufficient. We’re going to make it happen with or without you. So, If you’re going to be here, add to my situation. I know I’m going to add to yours.’” She adds, “Anyone that you are with the question should be how are they going to add to you? Most women want a great man that enhances who we are.”
i’d like to say this is the 2017 version of Jocelyn Brown’s Ain’t Nothing Going On But The Rent. Where she flat out told the brothers listen you gotta have a J.O.B. if you wanna be with me….. Ledisi is essentially about that life. Give Add to Me A Spin. It’s A definite women’s anthem. Don’t forget to Preorder the album. Enjoy!
