Label: AMF Records
Released: 4th June 2021
As her moniker alludes, Greentea Peng’s highly anticipated debut album is an 18-track opus that doesn’t just heal the mind and soothe the soul, but expands it too.
Accompanied by her band The Seng Seng Family, the record was recorded in 432 Hz frequency, a pitch that falls a semitone below music industry standard, which is thought to vibrate healing energy.
As delicate as it is fierce, ‘MAN MADE’ is a simply exquisite plethora of experimental jazz, hip-hop, neo-soul, ragga and dub, with a grunge curveball (‘Sinner) even thrown into the mix. The palette is vast and the tracks seamlessly tie into each other, led by Greentea’s ethereal vocals that twist and turn, effortlessly soaring as she navigates very real lived experiences and feelings across lyrical odysseys navigating the spiritual and socio-political. Greentea certainly is peng.
