New Northern State – “Away Away”

By Stereogum / January 12, 2007

Sprout, Spero, and the Hawthorne-loving Hesta Prynn of sing-rap trio Northern State embraced their inner Beastie for their All City follow up, enlisting Adrock himself (along with Shitake Monkey’s Chuck Brody) to produce their forthcoming, rhyme-and-guitar record. The Long Island trio’s past tourmates include De La Soul, Talib Kweli, and Tegan and Sara — all fair touch points for their tone. The first single from the forthcoming record is a little more sultry (with a lot more singing) than they’ve been in tracks past. Check it:
