[Forthcoming Release] Crosstown Rebel queen, Deniz Kurtel is at again with these three packaged singles, which will also appear on her upcoming full-length in June on Wolf + Lamb. Deniz teams up with some Wolf + Lamb labelmates, collectively deemed The Marcy All-Stars, to create three wildly unique tracks. If this is any indication of the musical diversity on the album, it’s bound to be a good one. “Thunder Clap” with Voices of Black is predictably slow and soulful, a little funky and completely appropriate when you disco-dancers start getting weird in the early hours of the morning. Tanner Ross supports on “The Beat Drops,” appropriately titled with a heavy bass note starting out the track, but a sliver of light shines through when a sexy saxophone lends the melody and a deep voices narrates. “I Knew This Would Happen” featuring PillowTalk is a downtempo and lengthy journey through a synth jungle (well, made up of a single, never ending synth) and a perfect round out to the EP. Deniz is a true artist, and her vision and soul shine through her musical work. The release is available May 7th, and don’t forget to keep a look out for the full length soon there-after.
If you’re a Southern California disco-dancer, don’t forget to see Deniz in action with Tanner Ross at Analog Bar on Friday.
