RINA MUSHONGA – ‘4QRTRS’
I’m sure we can all agree that the socio-political climate of today can really bum us out sometimes.
Dutch-Zimbabwean artist Rina Mushonga has released a single that offers a relief from the low spirits with the shimmering ‘4qrtrs’, taken from her upcoming album due early next year.
‘4qrtrs’ is an Afro-pop dream, Rina’s vocals are weightless, and drift magically throughout. Synths dance lightly around her voice and harmonies. As a celebration of Zimbabwe, the track sonically feels like a journey too, presenting an expansive sound and set of instruments that pulsate, creating something that feels wholeheartedly proud and exultant.
The video accompanying the track is comprised of self-shot videos, edited with vibrant graphics adding another dimension of intimacy to this already personal feeling track. This is exactly what the world needs right now.
