New Finnish/Dutch duo F.U.N.C. bring smooth experimental R&B

Written by 

The evolution of R&B (or indie R&B, or even PBR&B) continues to grow, as cultural roots and musical styles cross-pollinate to create the Finnish/Dutch duo F.U.N.C.

F.U.N.C. consists of singer Chai Blaq and producer Misha. The bands name is an acronym of their personal backgrounds; Finland, Ukraine, Netherlands and Congo. It’s also a wonderful symbol and reminder of the diverse and wonderful multicultural world we live in.

The duo’s debut single - Nectar, is a new constellation that sparkles of experimental/alternative R&B/hip hop and future beats. Chai adds the soulful, angelic vocals on this modern, sweet and sexy track that echoes FKA Twigs, Saint Cava and Twin Caverns.

Misha is more widely known as Finnish rapper Haamu, and he met Chai on a song-writing camp in the Netherlands in 2014. Since then Misha has focused on the duos beat creations and production.

F.U.N.C.’s captivating, inter cosmic visuals aptly fit the duo’s sound too. Nectar is a dark and smooth R&B track with an infectious melody. A highly recommended addition to your playlist!
