NGUZUNGUZU’s Warm Pulse due this summer on Hippos In Tanks
Asma Maroof and Daniel Pineda are the LA duo who make up Nguzunguzu. Pronounced en-goo-zoo-en-goo-zoo, their name rolls off the tongue as satisfyingly as their 3am sound vibrates through the body.
Following last year’s ‘Timesup’ EP on Kingdom’s Fade To Mind label, ‘Warm Pulse’ marks the duo’s debut outing on Hippos In Tanks. The unlikely holy trinity of Philip Glass, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and The X-Files watch over the EP, resulting in a deadly combination of grace, warmth and paranoia.A pyromaniacal tension stalks its five tracks, threading together the uneasy themes swimming beneath its many shiny, fractured surfaces: violent attacks, overdoses, smoke-filled rooms and out-of-body experiences.
