With new album ‘Elevators’ due for release March 14, Bishop Nehru follows up ‘Rooftops‘ with a second single, ‘Up Up And Away’. Not only does the track feature production from Kaytranada, but also a contribution from New York-based duo Lion Babe [performance artist Jillian Hervey and producer and instrumentalist Lucas Goodman aka Astro Raw].
“This project is a collection of my feelings straight from my heart, all of my ideas were created specifically off of instinct and intuitive occurrences,” explains Bishop Nehru on Elevators. “This album is my answer to the question, ‘What would you say your music sound like?’ My answer to that would be ‘Grammy Rap.’ There’s ‘Mumble Rap’ and then there’s ‘Grammy Rap.’ With this project I was largely influenced by music theory and Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys. This is my attempt at a ‘rap’ Pet Sounds.”
