NewAgeMuzik's 'Polaroid' Will Get You In Summer Mode

A slow-burning UK afro-fusion sound.

NewAgeMuzik are a London-based duo with the aim of taking afro-fusion to the future.

The UK group, made up of Kamo and Prince, are set to drop the new S.O.N.E. / Sounds of a New Era EP tomorrow, which will featured singles like "Dance For Me" and this new jam "Polaroid."

"The EP is an elevation of our sound & a perfect fusion of al the elements that makes us excited as musicians," the duo tells OkayAfrica via e-mail. "S.O.N.E. is our vision of how music will sound in 20 years.What would the beats sound like? What would the topics be? The EP fuses our ideas and our producers ideas of what the future is," Prince adds.

"We start from our Afro roots then move forward," continues Kamo. "We're trying to push abstract sounds to the forefront, and introduce different energies. We don't want to follow basic trends! The plan is to shift the status quo with the sounds we're making and the risks we're taking."

Today we're premiering the new music video for EP standout "Polaroid," a slow-burning and addictive song that showcases NewAgeMuzik's modern spin on the UK afro-fusion sound.


The track's music video, directed by Gomez, cycles through several portrait style shots of couples, friends and the duo themselves in front of silky backdrops.

"Our first mixtape was about jumping in a car with us and listening to our tunes. And now the cars flying to the next world. We're taking the first steps to Mars!"

Get into the new music video for "Polaroid" below and look out for the S.O.N.E EP tomorrow.
