Rainbow Arabia Premieres “Omar K” Video, Announces “Kabukimono” EP, Tours All Over Europe

Rainbow frontwoman Tiffany Preston dons a ridiculous beard and wreaks havoc on a local supermarket with the help of her mustachioed demon spawn. As awesome as it sounds!”

Tribal, world-infused new wavers Rainbow Arabia debut their new video for “Omar K” on Pitchfork.tv. Hot on the heels of their acclaimed debut EP “The Basta” the LA duo announces their next offering due in July, the “Kabukimono” EP featuring 5 new songs and two remixes from Brenmar (Bill Salas from These Are Powers) and the future bass, electro-crunked out stylings of SF’s Ghosts On Tape. (see below) Rainbow Arabia will also be touring all over Europe throughout May making the rounds on the festival circuit.

New Download: Omar K (Ghosts On Tape remix) from “Kabukimono”

“Creating the kind of noise you could imagine the DFA might make had they ever decided to throw a party in the underground ruins of Egypt, the ghosts of the Pyramids shaken into action by the sinuous rhythms and earth quaking basslines.”
20 Jazz Funk Greats

“Kaleidoscopic, intoxicated dance music made out of dervish rhythms, snakish melodica, and percussion procured from the labyrinthine corridors of some smoky souk.”
-Guardian UK

“Rainbow Arabia tread curiously close to the sounds of hip-hop acts like M.I.A. and Santogold. But with freewheelin’ ideals, punk urgency, and Middle Eastern-inspired instrumentation, Rainbow Arabia manage to find a tone all their own.”
