If I have any say in the matter, then Sex People will be the next big thing. The latest release from the LA band, ‘Sling Slang’, takes the seeming chaos of their influences, experiences, personalities, and talents, and puts it to music. There’s enough flavour – and then some – to keep even the most jaded pallette entertained.
Sex People started with Knarfy, a sixth-generation Southern Californian. He had two unsuccessful monogamous romances – each lasting a year – and after tasting all that LA had to offer, realised he was polysexual. Soon after, Knarfy’s mother died suddenly, and after a year’s grieving and celibacy, Knarfy met F.I.T., a Nigerian-born hip hiop artist. F.I.T. had travelled the world the previous five years, and finally found himself in Los Angeles, in search of his part of the American dream. The pair hit it off and formed Sex People, slowly bringing in a variety of singers, musicians, and artists into the group. Their debut EP, ‘Cal-Island: Season One’, is set for release on January 11, with the first single, the experimental pop track ‘Sanctuary City’ out now.
This January, viewers across the globe fell in love with Sex Education and the students of Moordale High School, with the series tracking to be a huge hit (estimated over 40 million households watching the title within the first 4 weeks). Following high fan demand for a second season, Netflix announced that the series has been renewed for 8 new episodes of the frank, heartfelt, honest and hilariously awkward series.
