|After firmly cementing themselves as one of country’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.

Featuring recently released singles “Hidle Ho!” and “Money For Portraits”, the EP will be available on Friday 28 July from Bandcamp on a pay what you wish basis. Jasmine & Licorice can also be preordered from iTunes on Monday 24 July with “Hold My Tongue” as an instant download.
