Seba Kaapstad, our favorite multi-national jazz/hip hop/R&B collective, have a new album out this Friday, and a new single to check out today. "I'm Scared" showcases the R&B side of the group, with the jazz side providing incredibly smooth instrumentation to suck the listener in. It's a powerful, uplifting track that blends all three genres seemlessly into one compelling sound. Plus, the addition of Oddisee providing a rap verse in the middle of the song is the perfect 90's throwback for many of us.
Singer Zoe Modiga says that "I'm Scared" is “a record that looks into the vulnerability of sharing the things we most fear. It is a song that humanizes us and though fear is a low frequency emotion, it can be acknowledged for one to work towards a better emotion.”
You can listen to "I'm Scared" below. Konke, the upcoming album from Seba Kaapstad, will be out on November 13 via Mello Music Group. You can pre-order a copy on Bandcamp. For more on Seba Kaapstad, check our the group's Twitter and Facebook.
