Quadron release a new track titled “Better Off” featuring Kendrick Lamar. For those who are unaware, the group is a duo consisting of Rhye‘s Robin Hannibal and Coco O. Quadron will be releasing their new album Avalanche is out June 4 via Vested in Culture/Epic.
Random but not so random fact: Both Robin and Coco were also members of a group called Boom Clap Bachelors, whose song “Tiden Flyver” is the primary source material for “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe”.
Here’s what Hannibal said about “Better Off”:
We only have one feature on our new album, and we are elated that it’s Kendrick Lamar. He invited us to collaborate on his own album, and we had such a great time working with him that we asked him if he wanted to be part of our project as well. We are so happy for all his success and we are very proud of this song. We wanted to have more of a fluid song that wasn’t too over structured and had a bit of a bedroom/after hours vibe to it.
