Blue King Brown’s Back

If bands were cars, Blue King Brown would be Jeep – versatile, vinyl roof down and cruising down the coast on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Worldwize Pt.1, the latest offering from the local nine-piece outfit, is a socially conscious, beat driven album that comes nearly half a decade since their highly acclaimed debut Stand Up.

This two disc album is the first half of a planned four disc set, allowing BKB the space to explore various themes and genres. Northside features more traditional roots and reggae based sounds, while Southside provides a dub and digi-remix alternative.

Front woman Natalie Pa’apaa’s striking vocals power tracks like ‘Mo’ Truth’ and ‘Say Peace’, while the intense Latino driven percussions, slick bass riffs and tribal drums mixed with the occasional hit of electro will smack you in the face like a good slug of tequila, leaving you feeling all warm and fuzzy on the inside.

You can catch Blue King Brown at the Big Day Out in January.
