KOKOKO! release new single Malembe

Kinshasa collective KOKOKO! have unveiled their brand new single Malembe, the first new music since their critically acclaimed debut EP, Liboso - listen here.

Discussing Malembe, KOKOKO! offered the following: ''Malembe means slowly, and Makara sings 'slowly, hit/beat me up slowly', then answers the backing vocals 'you will kill me' before singing 'make sure you’re heard and understood'.''

KOKOKO! are now back in Europe following a triumphant debut trip to the US, which saw them pack out shows in New York, LA and San Francisco - and also emerge as one of the most talked about acts at this year’s SXSW, with NPR choosing them as one of their festival highlights. The band start a European tour which ends with fast-selling headline dates at XOYO, London and Babadoum, Paris. Check out this aftermovie from their recent sold-out show at Bozar, Brussels:
