A journey “through Black art past and contemporary.”
Contour, aka Khari Lucas, is releasing a new album, called Onwards!, via Errol and Alex Rita’s Touching Bass this October.
Described as a journey “through Black art past and contemporary”, Onwards! sees Lucas fusing soul with electronics, psych rock, and archival material.
“The record exists as a bridge in conversation between today’s artists and art of the past which offered potential ways to navigate the world that we’re in; personally or on a larger scale,” he says.
Onwards! follows the label’s Soon Come compilation, released in July.
