Theophilus London - Mountain Dew Single #2
Indie music fan Solange [Knowles] and Devonté Hynes (Lightspeed Champion, Test Icicles) join Theo on his Sophomore Green Label Sound single. The "Flying Overseas" pairing really does make sense, as all 3 teeter the line between Hip-Hop/R&B and Indie [Rock].
Solange is known to be a die-hard Sleigh Bells/Dirty Projectors "groupie" - Even covering a track from the latter back in 2009. And does anyone else think Theophilus' cadence sounds a tad bit like that of KiD CuDi, with a dash of British accent?
London's Lovers Holiday EP is now available on iTunes. Also expect to soon see/hear a collaboration from Solange and Dev, as well as new music from Hynes under his recently-coined "Blood Orange" moniker.
