Toss R&B, soul, funk, and a bit of modern ingenuity into a food processor and you get Ottawa two-piece Garçons. Nigerian-raised singer Deelo Avery first teamed up with producer-director Julian Strangelove half a decade back and ever since the landmark decision to make music together in 2017, they’ve been catching lightning in a bottle. Last year we got their debut record Body Language and coming up in the fall Garçons shares their as-of-yet untitled EP, one that promises even more excellence from this soulful twosome.
The album’s lead single (and music video) finds Avery and Strangelove in a playful, edgy, and most of all groovy mood, topped off with a retro Fela Kuti-esque afrobeat feel for an absolute toe-tapper. Garçons’ sophomore EP isn’t out until August 28th but today you can begin the bump with “Pedigree”!
