It's almost as if the artist heard our cry for more when she released her standout track "Come Meh Way," which hails from her upcoming album. The single features Sudan Archives' hypnotic vocals and expert violin. It's engaging, rhythmic and a beautifully layered introduction to her new project. In the chorus, she stacks her own vocals, creating unique harmonies as she sings "I can't escape / I get blown away when you come my way." You'll find more of her creative ear when you listen to "Paid," which is an uptempo track made for a mean two-step and funky kickback. Mixing percussion and tech instrumentals, you can't help but get lost in her creativity.
Sudan Archives is gunning for the top spot and wants to reign supreme when it comes to her craft, whether we focus on her production skills, violin playing or vocals. She even claimed her queendom late last year when she released a cover of Kendrick Lamar's 2015 track "King Kunta," breaking it down and building it back up, creating her own version in "Queen Kunta."
Sudan Archives takes a classic instrument and uses it to create futuristic music for the progressive music listeners among us. Based on what we've seen and heard so far, her upcoming project will be nothing short of endearing. The vocalist and violinist will release her self-titled collection on Friday, July 14th on Stones Throw and will celebrate on July 24th with an intimate concert for her close friends in Los Angeles.
