Lao Ra – Bang Boom
Black Butter’s recent signee Lao Ra continues to make waves thanks to her distinguishing sound, in which she instills the best of contemporary UK pop music and all the reminiscences of her Colombian roots. The London-via-Bogotá popstress has now dropped another crazy good – perhaps even her best yet – single Bang Boom. It’s an insanely catchy track that unravels around a Latin rhythm marked by sparkling electronic percussions and Lao Ra’s cheeky and bold singing, before beautiful background horns kick off in the song’s finale.
Fun fact: Bang Boom was supposed to be a song about bamboo. “Bamboo might not look powerful, but it’s stronger than steel,” said Lao Ra. “It might bend, but it won’t break.” Listen below.
