If you like the idea of soundtrack music that might not sound out of place in a Tarantino movie, some wistful soul and slow-motion funk with an exotic ambience that offers hints of countries as far-flung as Hawaii and Japan, then you need some Khruangbin in your life. Their name means “engine fly” or “aeroplane” in Thailand (“It symbolises the international set of influences that shaped our music,” they say) and they are influenced by the Thai funk sounds and styles of the 60s and 70s cassettes they discovered on the cult Monrakplengthai blog. They come from Texas, though one of them currently lives in London, and they make music partly via Skype, and partly together in real life, in a barn in Burton, TX. There they can write away from the distractions of the city and everyday life, deep in the Texan countryside where the sky is big and the three of them can see for miles.
