Stream "Hold Tight," the Funky New Single from DFA Records' Sinkane

FADER PREMIERE

Sudanese songwriter Ahmed Gallab aka Sinkane is currently prepping Mean Love, his fourth solo full-length under that moniker. "Hold Tight"—the record's groovy and soulful first single—is a sleepily wrought ballad featuring Gallab's satin falsetto (You want me/ you call me/ you want me for reaaaal) over warm, liquid guitars and a smartly simple, gloriously funky bassline. Mean Love drops September 2nd via DFA. He's on tour this fall, too, including several dates with another multi-instrumentalist, Helado Negro.
