Premiere: Fufu Banana – “Dig” (feat. Alma Kelly)

We’re happy to premiere the fantastic “Dig,” a showcase in unique stylistic fervor and enjoyable structural capriciousness. The track comes from Fufu Banana, a seven-piece project based from Tel-Aviv, Israel. Drawing from groovy nostalgia and retro-futuristic psychedelia, Fufu Banana formed in the spring of 2018. With an upcoming EP, Do You Fufu?, releasing this May, 2020 appears likely to be the time for Fufu Banana to break through.

The project describes “Dig” as “a schizophrenic trip through psychedelic love and disappointment, delivering a lusty groove soaked in a dark and humorous ambiance.” Guest vocalist Alma Kelly adds a soulful, melodic quality to the choruses, providing a fun contrast to the funk-tinged vocal work of the band’s lead singer, Timmy. Dubbed as the darkest single off the forthcoming EP, “Dig” impresses with a funk-tinged rhythmic backbone, enjoyably varied vocal performances, and an infectiously consuming melodic pull.

“Dig” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2020’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Funk and Soul.
