Throes + The Shine Team Up With Colombia’s Meridian Brothers for Blissful Afro-Champeta Joy26 May, 2016
Fresh from dropping their first video (featuring Argentina’s La Yegros) from new album Wanga the Portuguese/Angolan rock/kuduro outfit Throes + The Shine have now released the full album, and this ditty featuring Colombia’s Meridian Brothers has our tails shaking.
The mixture of Meridian Brothers’ twisted, hyperactive, fluid electric guitars and Throes + The Shine’s joyous vocals, coupled with a breakneck feel-good chorus, give the track a strong afro-champeta flavour, making us wish that carnival would come back for just a few more days!
Wanga was released by Discotexas on May 20th.
