After releasing ‘1,000 Opera Singers Working in Starbucks’, ‘Peculiar Form of Sleep’, ‘Sin is Crouching At Your Door’ and ‘Tell’em, Makoto!’, Wovoka Gentle have now shared a new track from their upcoming debut LP. ‘Xerxes’ features glitchy electronics, soaring beats and the exuberant voices of Kids Club Kampala Choir. They add: “You could say there’s an atmosphere of celebration in Xerxes ‘19, even though it’s more or less about death. There’s an imagined ecstatic moment of submission before departing a world running election campaigns for tried and tested tyrants, where legends are equal parts seductive and dangerous. The Kids Club Kampala Choir was recorded in Uganda by a friend of ours, originally for the Kids Club Kampala charity. We wanted to create a call and response dynamic between our vocals and their vocals; the conversation flung across continents.”
