Watch: Cairobi - "Zoraide"

28 January 2015, 10:45 | Written by Jon Putnam

Originally hailing from the disparate locales of Austria, Italy, France, and Mexico, the now-London based quintet Cairobi synthesises a melange of styles as impressive as their geographic pedigree.

The group's latest single, "Zoraide", kicks off in a world-beat vein but quickly slices that through with bright, bulbous dollops of psyche-guitar strums, a sonic red herring for the lyrical laments of enduring a poisoned relationship.

The accompanying visuals follow suit, dousing the band in a kaleidoscope of colours and playfully - or, perhaps, grotesquely - warping them with fun house mirror effects.

Cairobi's The Distant Fire is out 23 February courtesy of Week of Wonders and can be preordered here.
