Petite Noir shares new track 'MDR' alongside debut album and UK tour news

@LeeThomasMason

Petite Noir have shared their new track ‘MDR’ alongside news of their debut album La Vie Est Belle / Life Is Beautiful set to be released on 11th September.

La Vie Est Belle / Life Is Beautiful, we’re told, represents the first full expression of what the half-Congolese, half-Angolan, Cape Town-residing calls ‘Noirwave’ – more of a concept than a specific sound. Inspired by innovators like Mos Def and legends Fela Kuti and Tabu Ley.

The band are set to plays a bunch of UK and European shows including The Lexington, London September 15th, Stereo in Glasgow and Deaf Institute, Manchester.
