Sometimes, an album cover is enough to make you stop and take a listen. In this case, it was R&B duo THEESatisfaction‘s artwork for their debut album, aWe NaturalE, which was released March 27th via Sub Pop.
THEESatisfaction consists of rapper Stasia “Stas” Iron and singer Catherine “Cat” Harris-White. You may have come across the pair when they did a guest track on Shabazz Palaces’ 2011 release Black Up.
Now they’ve got their one full-length release, and a video for their single “QueenS.” Warning: Do not attempt to pull off any of the fabulous looks you see in this video. Though they may pull them off flawlessly, you will not. Trust me – I’ve tried.
Lyric To Make Your Mantra: “whatever you do / don’t funk with my groove”
