When pictures of Michael Jackson, Karen Carpenter, and Walt Disney hang on the walls of the studio in which you record your album, strange things are bound to happen. Hecuba—who has just such a collection of pictures on its studio walls—makes music that’s tough to pin into a single musical category, it being an amalgamation of tribal drums, drone-like chants, and gentle horns. “Miles Away” is the lead single off the band’s upcoming debut album, Paradise.

Paradise is out May 26 via Manimal Vinyl.
