Texan trio Khruangbin – Laura Lee Ochoa (bass), Mark Speer (guitar), and Donald “DJ” Johnson (drums) – are peerless sonic sorcerers who borrow from a world of influences.
There’s is a colourful coming together of different sound, genres, cultures and era; there is funk, soul and hip hop, some Latin, Middle Eastern and Asian influences and a whole lot of beautiful psychedelia.
Having only recently been converted to their neo-psychedelic ways – more specifically their stunning 2018 record Con Todo El Mundo – it is exciting to discover Khruangbin have a new album Mordechai, primed for June 26. Ahead of the new record, the trio have shared ‘So We Won’t Forget’.It is a super smooth jam that saunters through the sunburned haze as jangly guitar intertwines with a funky bass line and jazzy rhythms, while Ochoa’s breezy vocals elevate us to next level dreaminess. ‘So We Won’t Forget’ is an undeniably beautiful track filled with hazy psych vibes, seductive grooves and dreamy, escapist allure.
You can listen to ‘So We Won’t Forget’ below, and while you’re at it, check out Con Todo El Mundo – you won’t be disappointed.
