Kansas City’s Instant Karma has vinyl. Well, they will soon enough. Next week (5/11) the groove-riddled, funk-laden, indie pop powerhouse will release their first vinyl, a special 45 featuring “Give Me Freedom” b/w “Shine On” via Sunflower Soul Records.

Sunflower Soul Records is notable for cutting fresh funk, jazz, and soul records here in KC, a perfect pairing with Instant Karma.

Side A is a three minute doozy. Snappy percussion, sharp vocals, airy harmonies, swirling effect-heavy guitars, “Give Me Freedom” is a track straight from the 70’s through and through. A declaration of freedom for all.

Flip the record over and you get “Shine On”. This track is much more toned down than the bombastic “Give Me Freedom”. Primary singer Colby Bale’s distinct vocals leads listeners through the song. From prevalent versus to the catchy hooks – “Shine On” is a perfectly sunny song.
