First Look Fridays: Columbia Nights
Columbia Nights is a production duo out of DC consisting of two guys, Hayling Price (keys) and John E Daise (bass). They caught our ear recently with a cover version of George Duke’s “Feel” (it seems Thundercat ain’t the only dude these days repping classic Duke). Their debut EP, Dusk | Dawn, just dropped this week. Their sound is an organic blend of analog and digital, soul and electronic, and ALL live instrumentation. Sarai Abdul-Malik is the featured vocalist on the EP. The group themselves say they’re “in search of a bold new approach to black music.” Intrigued? You should be. We think they’re onto something. Check out their EPK above, stream one of the EP tracks, “The Firmament,” below, and grab their EP via purchase links (also below).
