Kody & Bic
“Darkness All Around Us”
This has to be one of the coolest, most effortlessly beautiful tracks I have found, let alone heard, in a long time. It’s rare that a vibe can be so strong and immediately understood the way the sinister joy can be felt in Darkness.
The combination of ex-Mint Chicks lead singer Kody Nielson and one of New Zealand’s biggest stars, Bic Runga, is quite powerfully on display here. Right now Kody & Bic only have put out Darkness All Around Us and the explosively poppy yet eerie Change, but I feel they are only at the beginning of what I hope is a tremendous collaboration.
