MANALION ‘Floating 2’s’
This week’s Local eyes is from Australian-based, kiwi brothers (most likely from different mothers) who met by a bin fire floating wayward on a raft between the North and South Islands of Aotearoa, or so the story goes. This roots & dubtronic duo, ManaLion’s latest music video for their song ‘Floating 2’s’.
Between this deadly duo comes a combination of musical influences from Soul to Roots, Funk to DnB, Gangsta Rap to Hardcore. The cosmic couple have used these influences to create the sound they now describe as Alt/Pop Fantasy Reggae. They love, they live and learn by the pleasurable sounds of Motown, Bob Marley, The Police, AC/DC, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Tom Jones, Soundgarden, Dr Hook, the future and the sound of bacon cracklin.
Their new single ‘Floating 2’s’ is taken from their new LP ‘Nothing II Lose.
Local Eyes is a weekly segment on Base FM focusing on New Zealand Music videos.
