August seems to be the month for new projects, as LA-based electro-soul duo The Steoples gear up with the release of their debut full-length Six Rocks–releasing on Stones Throw today!

Following their first acclaimed  single “From the Otherside“, the poetic duo are in collaboration with producer Gifted + Blessed and Race of Angels vocalist Yeofi, offering audiences a complete package. Both captivating and provocative in melody and lyric, this latest project is a fulfilling listening experience.

The group is gifting listeners with a sneak peak following the early drop of standout track “Roles“, a haunting musical journey of love lost and restrictions of pattern. As solemn as it entrancing, and reminiscent of an early Radiohead, the track starts with a bang and takes musical lefts and rights leaving the listener reflective and connected.

Overall, Six Rocks is an 11-track package packed to the brim with emotion and poetry, all over a variation of smooth beats and complex production. Audiences are wrapped up, and they don’t even know why. The draw is inexplicable–curating a “boundless”, genre-free sound, The Steoples are solidifying their style in this latest LP, and we couldn’t be more here for it!
