“Vocally, Lagos sounds like the calm experienced when one watches leaves float through the breeze on an autumn day; musically Lagos sits at the intersection of hip-hop beats and spacey, atmospheric ambience…”
Lagos is the creative vision of Lashaan Everett and Jason McGuiness. Jason (Empyrean Tones, Common Goods Records), asked Lashaan to lay vocal tracks to beats he’d produced; the two joined forces and seemingly blasted off to space, never looking back. Their music often combines opposing elements; bringing booming baselines, fuzzy, drone-y guitar licks and atmospheric tones that make the duo’s love of Brian Eno and Cocteau Twins clearly evident, and they combine the elements seamlessly. This unique juxtaposition the two have created is something that makes for a listening experience quite unlike anything you’ve heard before.
Everett of Sugar Violet’s (vocals/guitar) fame grew up with a love of Punk Rock, Jazz, Hip-Hop and Psych/Shoegaze. Her vocal styling has been described as “…beautiful breathy, ethereal and mesmerizing…you’re drawn in and want more”.
Lagos will be releasing the first single “Could You” of the new album entitled, “Milk, Honey, Sea & Sky” will be available on all digital platform on August 5th 2020. Milk, Honey Sea & Sky will be released on vinyl in September 2020.
