Hear BC Kingdom's "DWN4U / JEEPS," the Latest from LA's Solange-Tipped R&B Duo

BC Kingdom, the LA-based duo of Zou Deon and Logan Eze, whose haunting "Lock Up" kicked off Solange's Saint Heron compilation last year, have an uncanny way of being simultaneously of-the-moment and obsessed with the past. Their latest, two-part "DWN4U / JEEPS," which premiered today at Pitchfork sounds markedly of-the-moment, not unlike fellow boundary-pusher Kelela or production duo Supreme Cuts. But there's also a distinct infatuation with R&B of the ’80s and ’90s; whispers of Aaliyah, Roger, and Brandy bubble up here. The resulting tension—between then and now, groundedness and a sense of the disembodied—gives depth to the single beyond just awareness of what sounds cool.
