Our favorite alternative hip-hop group from Canada, Zoo Legacy, has finally released a new single and were proud to premier it on BeforeBigs.com. We are huge fans of this band who has the alternative instrumental style of The XX with the rap swagger of Kid Cudi. They just released “L.K.U.T.” off the upcoming EP, City Light Glow, coming out in early July.
Watch the video to “L.K.U.T.” below and read a brief Q&A I did with lead vocalist/rapper Nick Pouponneau of Zoo Legacy.
What can fans expect from the upcoming EP, City Light Glow?
A ton of energy and a couple of surprises, we’ve worked hard at making this new EP and I think fans will really appreciate the fine tuning we put into it.
We’ve all grown musically so I think that will be something that people notice, and we’ve been able to really solidify what the Zoo Legacy sound is.
Next is to kill the summer with the live performances, we’re opening for Lauryn Hill and A$AP Rocky next month in our hometown and have been really focusing on getting our live set just right, we’re really excited to make this happen!
Wow that’s tough, I would say it sounds like us lol, we have been able to create this sound that is not so much a mix between two genres (indie rock and hip hop) anymore but more a genre on its own if that makes sense. It can be described as good music, instrumentally, lyrically, melodically all that good stuff!
