Laroca are next up in Just Music's new download only EP series with EP1
, the first taster of their forthcoming debut album, FRIENDS IN FAR AWAY PLACES
A slice of lush electronica, world flavours and muted beats courtesy of cinematic groove merchants Rob Pollard
& Olly Wakeford
features Laroca's signature tune, LOOKING LIKE LIONS
, as well as the compelling LA GLORIETA
and the sublime THEME FLAMBOYANT
which brings with it the welcome promise of warmer climes.
The Laroca sound is reassuringly chilled yet funky, symphonic, soulful, layered and exotic; drawing on world influences ranging from Sufi and Afro-beat to flamenco and Eastern European gypsy and should appeal to those who listen to Bonobo, Quantic, Lemon Jelly, Fragile State, Thievery Corporation, Minotaur Shock and the Catskills label.
Laroca's EP1 is available to download now from:
JUST MUSIC DOWNLOAD STORE
As well as Virgin Digital and HMV Digital amongst others.
