Nobody Wants To
A chunky slab of shimmering synth-soul on a hip-hop beat throbs out of the speakers on the new Chico Mann and Kendra Morris single. Served up with trademark afro guitar licks and spacey synth stabs this beautiful one-off release follows their killer album-cut 'Same Old Clown', the highlight of the Chico Mann 'Magical Thinking' full-length of 2012.
Kendra Morris explains: "Nobody Wants To is about trying to fill the void and then being to stubborn to let go....I feel like we all have this thing in us that we search to fill.. sometimes we are doing alright and it seems to maintain itself but then there are times usually when you're on some sort of self destructive warpath where it just is this hollow thing and you try to stuff anything into it to feel good....it feels good for a while but then it kinda bottoms out"
Kendra's long-time collaborator Jeremy Page (who produced both of her two albums for Wax Poetics Records) and Chico Mann built the instrumental - Kendra "had a ton of vocal ideas" the second she heard it and Nobody Wants To was born.
Chico Mann recently re-located from New Jersey City to Los Angeles where he's working on new material both as Chico Mann and with his new psych-rock outfit Here Lies Man.
The track plus an instrumental version will be released as a 7 inch Vinyl single as well as digital formats on May 9th
