Stream BC Kingdom's call-to-love ‘COLOURS’

The Solange-tipped LA duo respond to Ferguson in a breathy and silky future-R&B cut

“I keep coming back to it. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a song like that,” said James Blake of BC Kingdom’s “Lock Up” on his BBC Radio 1 residency show. We're inclined to agree: the song, released on Solange’s Saint Heron compilation, combines smooth, sensual R&B vocals with ride-or-die love lyrics and forward-thinking, electronic production. The Los Angeles-based duo’s newest song “COLOURS” is again multi-layered and darkly seductive, but it takes their message of love into a more political dimension. Logan and Zou of the band tell Dazed that they filmed the forthcoming "COLOURS" video in August, during the protests in Ferguson, Missouri over the shooting of 18-year-old black teen Mike Brown by a police officer. They add, “The lyrics encourage a universal kind of love, love that isn't based on color, race, religion, or status.” Their EP Buckwild Spirit, featuring Rome Fortune and other to-be-announced vocalists, will be out early next year.
