Lafawndah follows up 2016's ‘Tan’ EP with a collection of re-imagined songs by her peers and allies KLEIN, Bonnie Banane, Laurel Halo and Kelsey Lu, available from 20 October. Listen to her rework of Klein's ‘Lover’ below.
The ‘HONEY COLONY’ mixtape finds Lafawndah casting acapellas from those artists inside her singular sound world of martial percussion flurries and skewed modal pop, using her funhouse map of past, present, and future musics to chart common ground between a group of highly idiosyncratic voices.
Lafawndah has also been revealed as main support for Kelela’s ‘Take Me Apart’ US tour, kicking off at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles on 26 October. See a full list of dates below.
