To you, Them&US could be a brand new sensation in pop music that you should be on the lookout for, but to the initiated out there you probably have heard of the names Killa Kela and Ami during your own musical travels with the both clocking up an extensive amount of music experience throughout their careers respectively.
Ami Carmine is the lush, pink haired vocalist who actually provided her voice for U.K dance pioneers Basement Jaxx. Her voice is something unique which captures such greats as Kate Bush and my personal favorite comparison…Tori Amos!
Killa Kela need no introduction but for intensive purposes here is one anyway.
He is a heavyweight beatbox from West Sussex who himself has share stages with N.E.R.D, Mobb Deep, Redman and Buster Rhymes.
Funny tidbit about Killa……..he even did a route with The X Factor NZ’s own Daniel Bedingfield during a DMC contest.
Even funnier tidbit of information, he was on an episode of Nikka Costa’s web series Nikka’s Box
So what should entice you to listen to Them&US? Heavy percussion, dubstep synth lines with a melody of vocals, hooks and deserved for a title of Ear Worm goodness. Hell Im still humming their sensational track ‘Happy Ever After’ complete with video.
With an engagement supporting Kelis on the 30th of May, we got to talk to Then&US in this exclusive NZ interview.
