Negro Impacto share self-titled debut EP

Words: Dylan Muphy

Tap into the five track EP from the rising RnB duo.

Given the dire situation of the past 18 months and the number of songs documenting it it’s no surprise people are feeling jaded. So when Negro Impacto first landed on our radar with ‘Lockdown Syndrome’, we had our guard up, but the Dundalk duo’s warm approach to reinterpreting our time indoors won us over.

Now, they’ve made good on the promise shown in their debut single with the release of their first body of work. The self-titled EP lands at just over 12 minutes long and showcases Chi Chi and StrangeLove’s natural chemistry and range. It’s a pointless exercise trying to nail their sound into a neat box, but if you are a fan of Khruangbin, Skinshape, Thundercat and all that good stuff you are in for a treat.

Ahead of their project the pair released a series of newscast videos on their Instagram that are worth checking out too.
