Ibadan-based R&B band Miles From Mars – comprising individual acts SoulBlackSheep and Bio – is out with its debut single Asteroid Blues.
This duo uses a lot of space exploration imagery as part of their art and brand and when asked, they say it’s to remind the listeners that they are literally miles from Mars. Miles from Mars is impressive in the way they switch vocals, almost like two pilots at the helm of a spaceship with the aim of ‘creating beautiful sounds that are heavily influenced by their Nigerian roots’. Their debut single Asteroid Blues features Paula B and explores the themes of love and heartbreak, but with a sound that seeks to transport those that can relate to the pain to a place that is far from hurt and hopelessness.
We’re looking forward to more trips to space with Miles From Mars.
