"STYLES & DYNAMICS"
Born and raised in Philly and crash-landed in Charleston, John and Kevin Shields are the minds behind the quirky indie hip- hop group Little Stranger. Performing as a duo, Little Stranger is a fresh hybrid of John’s singer-songwriter magnetism and Kevin’s hard hitting, in-your-face delivery, earning them the title of “Hip Hop’s Simon and Garfunkel.” Stylistically reminiscent of Gorillaz and Twenty One Pilots, Little Stranger inhabits a rela- tively unexplored niche at this point in time. They’re all about originality, every song is a separate work unto itself with all the strangeness that their name implies.
Their latest release, “Styles & Dynamics,” showcases the duo’s ability to cross genres, effortlessly blending hip-hop with elements of pop, reggae and indie rock. The 6 track EP moves seamlessly from upbeat love songs to dark, yet playful, rap tracks that will satisfy even the slightest hip-hop fan.
