As a little treat for Valentines Day, a double AA-side single from Manchester hip hop soul heavyweights, Children of Zeus. Two non-album loosies get an official release on First Word on this, their 5th
7" vinyl single release.
First up, there's some classic vintage soul vibes on the slinkily smooth sounds of 'Royal', which first appeared as a free download on Valentines Day last year. The inimitable vocals of Tyler Daley saunter atop a truly regal break on this essential slow jam - perfect quiet storm business.
On the flip, a more contemporary jam sitting somewhere in the cracks between neo-soul, new jack swing and hip hop, as CoZ do so well, on the uplifting new year, new mantra of 'Get What's Yours', which previously appeared on First Word Records' free annual compilation 'Two Syllables'. A future anthem, for sure.
2020 is set to be another busy year for Konny Kon & Tyler Daley. As they continue to rock shows across the globe, they are busily working on their second official album, set to land before the year is out.
