Listen: Swet Shop Boys reveal new track ‘Zombie’

Heems and Riz Ahmed have dropped another cut from their EP ‘Sufi La’.

Earlier in the month Swet Shop Boys – aka the team of ex-Das Racist member Heems and screen star Riz Ahmed – announced new EP ‘Sufi La’, the follow up to their debut album ‘Cashmere’.

With its release impending – finally giving those who didn’t pick it up as a Record Store Day special the chance to hear it – they’ve teased another cut from the EP, ‘Zombie’. Built on a pulsating beat, the Boys weave a tale of immigrant identity, and what that actually means in the context of today’s climate. The bridges chop and skew world beats, giving a slight Bollywood vibe to the tune, even if it is warped to become something darker and less shimmering that what we might hear from the silver screen.
