Quadron—singer Coco O. and producer Robin Hannibal—will release their new album, Avalanche, June 4th via Epic imprint Vested in Culture and we're excited by what we've heard so far!

Coco and Robin said, 'We only have one feature on our new album, and we are elated that it’s Kendrick Lamar. He invited us to collaborate on his own album, and we had such a great time working with him that we asked him if he wanted to be part of our project as well. We are so happy for all his success and we are very proud of this song. We wanted to have more of a fluid song that wasn’t too over structured and had a bit of a bedroom/after hours vibe to it."

HPNB - Shoot me in a Dream

Written by

Shoot me in a Dream is the first single from HPNBs (Half Past Never Band) third studio album. The song has a typical HPNB sound where the influence of a variety of music styles are combined. Their new video has a western theme, and we've heard that during the video release event the evening will turn in to a western style duel set in a harbour area - we just hope the guns aren't loaded!
