Brika- Mumbai

12/12/2014 tunes4loons 0 Comments

Some people think pop music is becoming vapid AF but I say fuck 'em. Brika had me at the chipmunk-y background vocals going "ay-ee-ay-ee-ayyyyyyyyyy". Sure they mean ABSOLUTELY nothing, but they have me singing along like a yippy chihuahua. "Mumbai" is one 4-minute exotic experience from it's first ominous guitar lick to the fading-out of Brika's vocals, which are perfection as usual. This song sounds like a Caribbean-Arabian love-child (IRL, if that child existed, he/she would be a bi-racial beaut #jealous #IrishandIrish) The amazing production style and over-all jive-y nature of this track leaves me with just one lingering question: what da fuq is a girl this talented doing in Miami??? Sure Will Smith sang about it but that was in 1998 and that was the LAST time Miami has ever been remotely relevant in the music industry. Maybe homegirl's secretly tanorexic. Or a eastern-European immigrant. Both acceptable reasons to choose dwell in America's most miserable city*. Brika's new album drops in t-minus 4 days so r̶u̶n̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶r̶ ̶n̶e̶a̶r̶e̶s̶t̶ ̶F̶Y̶E̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶p̶i̶c̶k̶ ̶u̶p̶ ̶a̶ ̶c̶o̶p̶y̶  get ready to illegally YouTubetoMP3 this ish.

Sounds Like: BANKS, Ella Eyre

*You may think I'm being harsh but Forbes agrees with me. It doesn't even snow there and yet it still tops the list #SMH
