Stream Sinkane's 'How We Be' The Second Single Off His Forthcoming LP

Muti-instrumentalist Sinkane drops 'How We Be,' the second single off his forthcoming 'Mean Love' LP off DFA/City Slang.


We’ve been hooked on the sweet falsetto and swaying soundscapes of Ahmed Gallab’s alter band ego Sinkane for a minute now and are keeping a close tab on the release of the multi-instrumentalists sophomore album Mean Love (set to drop September 2nd on DFA Records in North America and City Slang worldwide). A month back, the Sudanese-born/BK based sonic-experimentalist released “Hold Tight,” the first single off his upcoming album. He returns with "How We Be," a soulful composition that builds off some funky keyboard action and stars Gallab's crystalizing voice. The song's verses are filled with an airy flute that tiptoes on top of a bouncing bass, adding to the overall psychedelic feel of the track. Stream "How We Be," the second taste off Sinkane's upcoming LP, below and look out for Mean Love dropping September 2nd.

A 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which rattled Mexico City on September 19, was felt as far down as Zapotalito, and the very next morning, its Black, Indigenous and poor Mestizo residents, who depend on the area's handful of lagoons for food and commerce, woke up to an awful smell and that terrible scene of floating fish.
