WITCH - "Unimvwesha Shuga"

WITCH (aka We Intend to Cause Havoc), the Zamrock pioneers who recently reunited, have released a new single that veers in a different direction than their previous one. "Avalanche of Love" was more of a psychedelic rock meets hip hop hybrid, while "Unimvwwesha Shuga" is more along the style of the group's 80's disco period. It's still WITCH, so the new song is more of a psychedelic version of disco than we're used to, which gives the track a very unique vibe. It's a fun track (it should be, it's disco) that somehow sounds modern by delving into the band's musical history.

Singer Theresa Ng'ambi says of the new song:

“In that studio, we felt the freedom to express ourselves in ways that are often restricted in our own culture because of us being women. 'Unimvwesha Shuga' is an expression of love and passion, we (Hanna and I) were gossiping about our fantasies as girls and the things we dreamt to express but wouldn't normally be able to. To us, singing these words was a liberation to express our crazy fantasies.''

You can listen to "Unimvwesha Shuga" below. Zango is due out June 2 on Desert Daze Sound, and is available for pre-order here. For more on WITCH, check out the artist's website.
