"If Prince put this out, it would be hailed as a return to form." - Guardian
"3 is a smooth soul 12" of baby-making music." - Loud & Quiet
"3 is an exciting sound, all slinky R'n'B flourishes and ice-cool future-pop." - The Fly
"...very few bands could actually pull this off—but that’s Inc.’s whole thing. Emulating sounds that shouldn’t necessarily be emulated and then updating them and making them appealing in a reverent, but not unnecessarily nostalgic way." - The Fader
LA based duo inc. release their debut record for 4AD, the 3 track EP, '3. Issued as both a limited edition 12" and download, you can listen to the lead track 'Swear' here.
The music of LA-based brothers Andrew and Daniel Aged, inc. (formerly Teen Inc.) first began recording in 2010. Prior to forming both Andrew and Daniel spent several years playing, recording and touring with a number of pop heavyweights, including 50 Cent, Elton John, Pharrell Williams, Beck, Raphael Saadiq, Cee-Lo, Heavy D, Robin Thicke, amongst others, and as their past attests, their music as Inc. paints a portrait of the great American songbook.
As with their self-released 7", 'Fountains'/'Friend Of The Night' (2010), the EP was written, produced, engineered and mixed by the brothers. Inc. are currently working on their new album, which will see the light of day next year. The band also play the Echoplex, LA on 29th July. More details here.
