Kenyan electronic pop outfit Just A Band come back after a long silence with "Winning In Life," the first single off their as-of-yet unnamed fourth album. Produced by Blinky Bill, the new track pairs Joe Were's house-influenced keyboards with laid back vocals and features Kenyan-rooted, Seattle-based Owuor Arunga — who plays and tours with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis — on some soaring trumpet fills. There's not much else we know about the group's new album, but we'll keep you updated as we get more info.
