New Music To Know This Week: Au/Ra Contemplates Happiness & More

I’m not typically a fan of British hip hop, but what KEYAH/BLU is doing is worth listening to. Not only is her flow completely unique, and just as influenced by James Blake as it is by J. Cole, her backing track is like an 8-track sound from the late ’70s mixed with something chopped and screwed mixed with Caribbean and island influences. All of that combines to make something totally cool, totally new, and totally playlist worthy.
