Baggy fashion and R&B have an association that’s almost inseparable, but Phlo Finister’s 60s style seems to turn it around – this Oakland-born, LA-raised 19-year-old musician strikes not only with her mod, Edie Sedgwick-y look, but also the soulful, light music that she makes.
Phlo Finister has recently self-released a six-track EP, titled ‘Crown Gold’. The first track Riders on the Storm is a mash-up of a Dr. Dre beat (Xxplosive) and The Doors’ track of the same title. Threading the classic Nancy Sinatra track Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) and Mobb Deep’s Shook Ones Pt. II, Bang Bang comes off as a shimmering, R&B-driven rework that displays her slick productions.
