Yesterday, Charleston’s Terraphonics released their newest single “Stay Warm”, with the one and only Shaniqua McCants handling lead vocals. I’ve been waiting to hear this one ever since they first started dropping hints on Instagram about recording with Shaniqua, who I saw for the first time at Benjamin Starr’s live recording of A Water Album. Her voice combined with the masterful musicianship of Terraphonics makes “Stay Warm” an exciting look at what the group has in store for us, and an even better way to ease ourselves into winter.
According to a recent interview that Terraphonics leader Thomas Kenney did with Charleston Scene, Shaniqua is now the group’s full-time vocalist. That means we’ll be hearing a lot more of this kind of collaboration in the future.
Kenney also mentioned that the new material from Terraphonics will be more minimalistic in approach than their previous releases, with more of a natural feel that lends itself to being played in a live setting.
