MP3: Hawthorne Headhunters - "If You Were My Baby"
Black Spade and Coultrain have joined forced to become the official torch-bearers of Hawthorne Headhunters. The duo went in the studio last summer and Myriad of Now, the group's full-length debut was born, a 14-track collection of funk, electro and R&B that speaks on spirituality, sexuality and everything in between. Carrying on the lineage of Black music dating back to the blues and the inception of jazz, Hawthorne Headhunters melt influences together to break new ground. Myriad of Now will be released via the LA-based label Plug Research (Bilal, Quadron, Exile).
Explaining the meaning behind the album title, the group says, "it's many directions of this now. All we have is this right now, so you can go in many directions with this record, that's why we have so many different genres. It all depends on who you are."
Coultrain explains the significance behind the single's A-side "If You Were My Baby (Reprise)": "The subject matter touches on the chase of, surrender to, and polarization of love. Our message is that true love can be found through searching within, hence lines like ‘the people who can't make love make money.'" Still, even when describing their own sound, ‘Train never allows for the kind of perspective that allows Hawthorne Headhunters to marry so many styles and topics so effortlessly, "these descriptions are only a small portion of what this is about. The song's importance and our feelings towards them evolve as we do. The listener decides what the song is about, what it means. It is up to their own interpretation, our story is only one perspective of an infinite amount."
