KUNZITE sure isn’t losing any time in unleashing their music upon us, even though the fascinating new project just made their debut with MONKS a few short weeks ago. And we’re not for complaining at all. Not only are they back with a new single, but the duo, whose ranks include Ratatat’s Mike Stroud and White Flight’s Justin Augustin, have already announced a debut album, too! Birds Don’t Fly is set for release on March 2nd. And the hotly tipped pair regales us with more of their “multidimensional sound stream broadcasting from the inner depths of Earth, while simultaneously emanating from the heart of the Milk Way Galaxy” with VAPORS and its music video. KUNZITE’s sound is not easy to typecast. In fact, it subverts expectations with its spacey pop and dance ready groove. If VAPORS really were a sound stream from space, it’s a swift reminder that space itself is shackled to time… This song seems to defy delineations of eons and epochs. Funk guitars, behemoth pop hooks, and psychedelic flourishes abound on the flashy alt electronic jam. A free download of VAPORS is available from KUNZITE’s website, here

Kunzite is without a doubt one of the more intriguing newcomers of the new year so far. The project just debuted today with their first single, MONKS, an indie electro meets psych pop prancer with hints of reggae trickling through in its rhythmic cadence. The two producers and multi-instrumentalists who make up this band are no strangers to the music scene. Mike Stroud of RATATAT and Agustin White of WHITE FLIGHT are the gentlemen responsible for this sweet tune, and they describe their sound as a “multidimensional sound stream broadcasting from the inner depths of Earth, while simulataneously emanating from the heart of the Milky Way Galaxy.” More info about the pair can be found on their website, here.
