    Sudanese singer Ahmed Gallab, aka Sinkane, has a striking-but-soothing falsetto. On “Hold Tight”, the new single from his upcoming album Mean Love, it’s particuarly stunning. Here, the David Bryne-collaborator nails piercingly high notes over spacey guitars, warm and funky bass, and airy synths.

    Listen in below (via The FADER):

    Mean Love hits shelves on September 2nd via DFA Records. In support, Sinkane will embark on a fall tour, including a North American jaunt with Helado Negro. The full schedule is below.
