It’s fitting that Byron Biroli would find a game collaborator in Afrofuturist digital collagist Khan Nova. His songs are a meld of electro soul and Baganda traditions with a distinct retro future vibe, all wrapped together in a warm synth glow. A video collaboration from them would be mind bending perfection. Biroli’s latest “Kings” is a love song celebrating that person who inspires you to be the best version of yourself. It’s the kind of song that instantly washes away the cynicism that’s all too easy to fall into these days. More of this please!
