    March 27, 2022 – Never underestimate the power of a sublime, slow groove. The kind that, from the opening bar, starts your foot a’tappin’, propels your head back and forth in time and quickly works its way to your shoulders and hips; once in, you never want to leave.

    Shanuka, a Canadian singer/songwriter, has delivered just such a groove with her terrific new single “Hurricane.”  Anchored by sinuous, single-coil electric rhythm guitar and a simple hypnotic beat, Shanuka’s rich vocals melt over the track like honeyed, warm butter. You’ll hit repeat on this one, I promise.  Enjoy.
