POW! Negro’s debut EP is on the way, with WA shows to celebrate

After firmly cementing themselves as one of WA’s most promising up and coming acts with their trailblazing live show and hard-hitting singles, POW! Negro are excited to release their long-awaited debut EP Jasmine & Licorice.

Featuring production work from David Kennedy (A Tribe Called Quest, Mos Def) and Michael Jelinek (The Growl), the EP showcases the group’s eclectic style of hip-hop, jazz and psych.

Having already graced stages with acts such as Remi, Sampa The Great, Koi Child and Blackalicious as well as playing coveted slots on festivals such as Groovin the Moo and Southbound, POW! will be embarking on a run of dates in July to debut their new full live show, taking in Bunbury, Dunsborough and Perth.

POW! were recently announced as one of the showcasing artists at BIGSOUND and there’s a stack of exciting news to come for the rest of the year.

Featuring already released singles “Hidle Ho!” and “Money For Portraits”, the EP will be available from Bandcamp with a “pay what you wish” offer. Earlier this week the band posted on their social pages “We know this EP has taken us forever to finish, so you’ll be able to pay what you want over at Bandcamp. Thanks for being so patient with us.”

If the first two singles from the EP are anything to go by, it’s been worth the wait!
