Chimurenga Renaissance Cast A Dark Pop Spell w/ New Single "Girlz With Gunz"

Chimurenga Renaissance - "Girlz With Gunz"

It’s been some time since we heard anything in the way of new sounds from Chimurenga Renaissance; a genre-melting duo comprised Tendai Maraire of Shabazz Palaces and guitarist Hussein Kalonji

First we heard from the duo was back in 2014, when they were prepping their debut album, riZe vadZimu riZeNow two years removed, they’re gearing up for the 11-track follow-up EP, Girlz With Gunz, which should prove to be just as potent with its blend of organic and synthesized notes. Today, they’ve shared the project’s title-track, a searing dark pop spell that tells the tale of Grace; a woman who fought in Zimbabwe during the Second Chimurenga, which ended white rule in the country in the 1970s. 

Hear the title-track from Chimurenga Renaissance’s new album down below. If you’re looking to see the duo live, you can catch them in their hometown of Seattle, performing on February 19th at Nectar Lounge. Keep an eye out for their Girlz With Gunz EP, due on February 5th via Glitterbeat. Pre-order the album today via iTunes and hold tight for all of the supporting sounds and sights in the weeks and months ahead.
