Saun & Starr - Big wheel video, album out May 19

Looking forward to this gsoul gem: "Following their 2014 breakout single "Hot Shot"—Daptone's most successful 45 release—longtime Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings backing singers, Saundra Williams and Starr Duncan-Lowe, (known as Saun & Starr) are set to release their debut full-length album, Look Closer, on May 19th.

Look Closer was produced by Gabriel Roth and recorded with The Dap-Kings at the House of Soul studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn in 2014. Preorder the album here:

Here's some background on Saun and Starr, who first met Sharon Jones in a wedding band in the 90s - there's a pic of that band in the clip too.
