NOMO and Shawn Lee collaborate for this one-off 7'' single which was sold at NOMO gigs w/ Iron & Wine. This 7” tour exclusive is limited to 500 copies, it also features NOMO’s “Nocturne” on the B-Side.

This collaboration came about almost by accident. NOMO’s Elliot Bergman had spent the better part of the summer building and recording electric kalimbas in Brooklyn, when label-mate Shawn Lee asked him to send over a kalimba track for his new album. Lee, based in London, added some funky drums, bass and a smattering of steel drums, and sent it back to Bergman. When Bergman’s sister, Natalie, heard the instrumental track destined for Shawn's album, she decided that she had to add some vocals. She stayed up all night writing the tune and recorded the vocals in garage band. The happy result is a great groove, and NOMO's first vocal tune in ages.
