Watch List: Quadron - Pressure
Highly regarded since the release of their self-titled debut album in 2009, the Danish duo Quadron, comprised of singer Coco O. and producer Robin Hannibal, have been making waves on the international music scene with what Coco O. describes as 'emotional soul, it's soul music, but it's not like Motown...it's more like soul music with a lot of real emotions in it'. An fan of Michael Jackson from a young age, Coco was also influenced by the likes of Lauren Hill, Erykah Badu and Sade, and while singing soul covers in nightclubs she was introduced to Robin and the musical collective Boom Clap Bachelors. Asked to do some songs for a film, she 'asked Robin to do that project with me. We knew that we had to do an amount of songs, so we did 12 songs and that became the album', with this self titled debut catching the attention of the likes of the BBC's Gilles Peterson, KCRW radio, Adele and Prince, and saw them go on to work with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Odd Future, Tyler and Pharrell Having signed with Epic Records' Vested In Culture, they are working on a new album, with Coco saying 'the sound has gotten a little bit mature...it's more mid-tempo...it's better hopefully...I just hope people can hear the sincerity and that we're serious about what we are doing'.
Quadron's new single 'Hey Love' was featured on the ABC show 'Grey's Anatomy', and with the upcoming June release of their new album they will be playing a special show at Le Poisson Rouge in NY on April 25th.
