THROES + THE SHINE "WANGA" CD
by Throes + The Shine
Throes + The Shine believe in magic, and that’s why they’re christening their new record Wanga. It translates as spell in kimbundo, an Angolan dialect spoken mostly by the elderly. And that’s what each song represents in this album. Spells to make you move, to make you feel joy, communion, empowerment and to allow experiences that are both new to the fans and to the band themselves. It’s the first time they allow an outside producer (Moullinex) to delve deeply within the creative process with the band as well as the first work that will have collaborations with other bands and musicians from three different continents. This makes the collectives third record a breath of fresh air and an unexpected journey through many different genres and cultures with their distinct sound stamp that just makes it impossible not to move. It’s release is due in May through Discotexas (Universal/!K7).
