LYRICS BORN LOVES SWEATER FUNK
Taken from SF Weekly:
Sweater Funk's irresistibly smooth '80s boogie is catching on. The new video, "Coulda Shoulda Woulda," from the Bay Area's Lyrics Born, features the same kind of funky grooves that dominate that DJ night.
The video certainly has its charms, with the warm colors, '80s film fuzz, and cartoon faces, but what sells it most is the song itself: the impeccably smooth boogie swagger of the band, with its fat, but precise bass, pointed horn accents, and singalong choruses, complemented by Lyrics Born singing, rapping, and doing that singsong half-rap thing he's so good at.
"Coulda Shoulda Woulda" is from Lyrics Born's 2010 release As U Were. The video premiered on May 23rd.
