Fashion / SOUND OFF: 10 QUESTIONS WITH B.C. KINGDOM
One of our fav HQ stylists may have met these guys at Silverlake’s Los Globos, but since we’re on the constant lookout for new and up-and-coming artists, we must say that we were quite pleasantly surprised when we first heard this fresh new hip-hop/R&B/tribal/new-wave mesh of a duo fire up our headphones. With a dance-party-reckoning sound and a vibrantly unique style, B.C. Kingdom makes us want to “running man” down to the closest record store (err…we mean iTunes Store) and grab the EP, like now.
