Listen/Share: Shookrah – ‘Notions’
Release date: 20th September
‘Notions’ is an upbeat offering that bursts with textured atmospheres and danceable beats, all led by the unwavering might of Senita’s vocals. The track is vibrant and full of personality, abiding by a mood of vivacity and sunniness, despite lyrics centred around the agonies of love. Shookrah build a soulful playground on ‘Notions’ and the results are stunning, as they twist disco, funk and soul into fresh and kaleidoscopic new patterns.
Speaking of the track, Shookrah give some insight: “‘Notions’ is an ode to and lament of the energy and time we’ve all wasted at one point or another staying in dysfunctional relationships. It’s a recognition of faults committed to the other and yourself in seeking out traits other than those presented to you, which disqualifies the question of who was right or wrong and bares the reality of how hollow we become when we want something so bad that a tarnished version of it will do.’’
