Cubic Zirconia Prep Debut LP for LuckyMe
- Words: Patric Fallon
If you were to ask them, New York's Cubic Zirconia (fronted by former XLR8R covergirl Tiombe Lockhart) makes "ethnic disco," but releases on the burgeoning Night Slugs label and affiliations with the likes of Ikonika and Egyptrixx might place them closer to the speaker-busting dance genres currently running UK clubs. No matter what you call the band's slick, vintage-leaning music, one thing is for sure: Cubic Zirconia can wrangle bass, beats, and booties with the best of them. And we'll soon get our first taste of those sounds in an LP format, courtesy of Scotland's LuckyMe label. Come February of next year, Cubic Zirconia will drop Follow Your Heart, a 13-song offering of forward-looking dance music meshed with early R&B flavor, classic house vibes, and who knows what else, with guest appearances from Drop the Lime, Bilal, and Dâm-Funk to boot.
