For the past few years, since MIA’s Maya album, there has been a void in the give-no-fucks electro-dance-R&B-dancehall female rapper genre. Zoe Kravitz (lead singer and daughter of divine goddess, Lisa Bonet) is the anti-pop-star; smoking up on stage, producing trippy music videos, and not abiding by the confides of genre.
My friend Margaret puts it perfectly why this band is a must-listen:
- Each song is fairly unique from the rest of the album (and other artists for that matter).
- Some seriously dope dancing tunes (like “AYO”).
- The musical composition is intelligent and captivating.
- Her voice is dreamy and something about it feels both fierce and calm, a cool contradictory mix.
Basically, Lolawolf’s Calm Down album is awesome as fuck.
