Evocative, wistful and driving, ‘Tucan’ is the first single from NZ duo KidsOf88’s forthcoming second album Modern Love.
Kidsof88 bounced onto the scene with 2009′s ‘My House’, a major hit in NZ that saw them tour internationally, release their well-received album Sugarpills, pick up several NZ Music Awards and several gold and platinum singes.
The new single sees Sam McCarthy’s chart-certified voice blend into a sound world composed of hip-hugging Kudoro drum rhythms, ethereal acapella arrangements and water droplet melodies.
With a vocal assistance from Alisa Xayalith of The Naked And Famous, ‘Tucan’ uncovers a soaring sense of yearning and a gentler, more melancholic side to a band renowned for their party-starting live performances.
