Nu Jazz artist and percussionist Brijean Murphy, who’s played alongside the likes of Toro y Moi, Girls, Poolside, and more, has announced the release of her debut EP, Walkie Talkie. To commemorate the announcement, the eclectic artist has shared the forthcoming project’s first single “Show and Tell” alongside a music video.
The new track totes a range of genres through various instrumentation. Toting a funky bassline, the track hits into disco territory with chime additives, keyboard melodies, and skittering synth additives. Conga-based percussion graces the track throughout, slowly building until offering up a brief conga solo roughly midway through the cut. The video resorts to rather off-kilter territory, with a couple inside their living room – a man is using an elliptical trainer, with a woman reading as Brijean sings on the TV-screen in the background.
You can check out the video for “Show and Tell” above. Brijean’s debut EP, Walkie Talkie, arrives on June 28 via Native Cat Recordings.
