The Narcotix - "Lilith"

Based out of Brooklyn, The Narcotix are a West African art-folk band. Their latest single, "Lilith," embodies that description. It reminds me of a more organic Kalbells with a little more of a pop sound and a strong African root. "Lilith" creates this swirling sound that envelops the listener in this warm, dreamlike state. It's a lush, gorgeous song that will have you transfixed. It's filled with reverbed and layered vocals, synths, and Congolese guitar riffs. Even if that doesn't sound like your thing, you owe it to yourself to give The Narcotix a shot.

In a press release, The Narcotix explain the new song:

""Lilith" was created in a tantric temple in Oakland, CA. She was also Adam’s wife before Eve, made from the clay whence Adam came instead of his rib. But that’s another story. Birthing her was our very own form of ritual. Bumbling Becky found the catchy keyboard riff (or perhaps it found her), and Esther swung her voice in a swirly pattern to match the surrounding smoke. Thus the zygote known as "Lilith" was formed."

You can listen to "Lilith" below. Mommy Issues is due out June 11 and can be pre-ordered via Bandcamp. For more on The Narcotix, check out the artist's website.
