Meet the tightest drums in the game right now.

If you dig artists like Hiatus Kaiyote or Yazmin Lacey, then Swiss jazz / indie-soul /acid jazz 6-piece Calalloo is up your alley.

Adding to my joy in crafting this post is an additional reason - "Vicious Circle" marks their inaugural release, and mere hours have elapsed since their official debut.

Listening to this song makes me feel happy, groovy, laid-back, and trippy at the same time. It is so many cool emotions bottled into one and it captures the current essence of Zurich's nu-jazz scene. Calalloo seamlessly assimilates the nuances of the European jazz landscape, infusing their unique flair to craft an exhilarating musical odyssey.

This gem is released by the Zurich-based label Current Moves, founded by our friends and people we've featured since 2016 - the Okvsho brothers.

Selma (vocals), Lorin (drums), Damien (keys), Orlando (bass), Janaína (percussion) and Yannick (guitar) are going places.
