New Music: Rebel ACA & French Monkey Wrench – African James Bond

London-based recording artist Rebel ACA and producer French Monkey Wrench present their off-the-wall debut track “African James Bond” via UK indie label Buttercuts Records Limited.

Mixing elements of modern folk, rock and Hip-Hop together with an international flair, the pair’s musical stylings is reminiscent of early Gorillaz and Massive Attack, primed for ears that crave fresh, unconventional sound with a meaningful underlying message.

Even the song “African James Bond,” as peculiar as the name is, was created from a significant place as the two attempted to pull a dear friend out of a slump.

Rebel and French explaining the meaning behind the song:

“It’s a song about a friend of ours that suffered with depression. We have worked with him on a previous project and he is a very talented musician but for various reason he lost his way.

We wrote the song to basically reach out to him and try and communicate – that he’s strong, and that life “it’s only rock and roll”… “hit reset, hit delete, it’s done mate, it’s so last week.

He is a James Bond type character – a seriously cool dude – so that’s where the song name comes from – and musically the song draws on many different influences – so we called it AFRICAN JAMES BOND to represent that.”

“African James Bond” serves as the first single from their forthcoming album, Sunday’s Cool, slated for release in March 2018.

Stay tuned.
