Brief Excerpt from Interview:
Atlanta’s Wondaland Records has witnessed tremendous success over the past few years, recently coming off the excitement of its 2015 compilation EP, Wondaland Presents: The Eephus. The collection features the label’s boisterous roster, which includes the likes of Jidenna, Deep Cotton, and Roman GianArthur. Wondaland’s releases have seen a string of captivating soul, funk, and hip-hop music with label founder Janelle Monáe leading the pack of experimental musicians.
The latest artists to emerge from the label are Alex Belle and Isis Valentino, the soulful voices behind the band St. Beauty. The duo met in 2011 while working at a local Atlanta thrift store where they bonded over their shared love for classic soul musicians like Stevie Wonder and Nina Simone and their aptitude for creating poetic storytelling music. Since releasing 2015 single “Going Nowhere,” Alex and Isis have been preparing for the release of their debut album. This week St. Beauty released a new single “With You” a soulful good riddance ballad with the tweet “…a snack before the feast.”
