Denitia Odigie and Brian “Sene” Marc will release their sophomore full-length album, love and noir., tomorrow. Fans in NYC are invited to celebrate at the record release show TONIGHT at Mercury Lounge at 11pm. Today, the band shares a short film they made alongside the latest album track.

– The New York Times
“Denitia Odigie has become one of NYC’s most prized voices.” – Okayplayer
“Coital, iceberg-cold R&B…” – Rolling Stone
“Sometimes Denitia goes it alone, and sometimes Sene does. But the moments when their vocals swim through and around one another are when the real magic happens.” – NPR
“This single will be a fixture in our autumn playlists.” – Refinery29
“It’s easy to lose oneself in the harmonious voices of electro-soul twosome Denitia and Sene.” – SPIN
“…a dark and moody slice of electronic-backed soul.” – Pigeons & Planes
“smoldering slow jam” – The FADER
Individually, Denitia and Sene have been busy since their last release, his and hers., which hit Top 10 on the iTunes R&B chart. Denitia released the sprawling Air Light EP for her solo project ADESUWA earlier this year. Sene is in the cast of the Netflix television series Luke Cage and stars alongside Emma Roberts in Nerve in addition to a lead role in festival favorite White Girl.
denitia and sene. have mastered the fine art of soulful sensuality with their irresistible, smooth-as-silk sound, effortlessly melding elements of electronic, hip hop, funk and minimalist underground pop in equal doses—a reflection of their respectively diverse musical backgrounds which joined forces in 2011. At a time when the idea of “alternative R&B” has become the genre-defying norm, and hip-hop, EDM, house music and indie-rock run the risk of blending into each other, the chilled-out, futuristic experimental pop vibes of Brooklyn act denitia and sene. make a perfect kind of sense.
