Somewhere between hip hop, funk, soul, r&b and indie rock; the Vibonics sound is more accurately described by feel than genre. Last Thursday, the Vibonics performed at the Hard Luck bar and released their debut EP. I took in the show and was impressed with the chemistry of the 6 member band. Lead singer Kubota has an incredible voice, which pairs nicely with the rhyme skills of Toronto emcee Crossword. The Vibonics just returned from a trip to the U.S., and are currently in writing mode. They plan to tour central Canada and parts of the US in late fall. Listen to the EP below, comment, and let us know what you think.
