‘Pumpkin Pie’ by Mort City is not just a nostalgic track of the 90’s it also has a very fresh feel in the vocal melting the past with the present really well.
It’s a flirty, high energy tune with an afrobeat rhythm section providing the foundation for funky guitar and chromatic melodies fronted by punk rap vocals. Sounds like a collaboration between Tony Allen (Fela Kuti), Tom Morello, and Cage the Elephant.
After 2 years of collaboration and crate digging, the style evolved into a product that fuses all elements of their favorite music. Afrobeat rhythmic foundation, Primus-like chromatic melodies, heavy Tom Morello riffs, fuzzed out Ty Segal guitars, fronted by semi melodic vocals sounding like something between Cage the Elephant and Jack White.
