Kwabs Takes Us On A Walk

Monday, August 18, 2014

Sheepishly I haven't been talking at all about Kwabs on this site, but I think now is a good time as ever to drop a few words about him as his latest song, "Walk", keeps pacing in my mind after a couple of days of indulging in its epicness. The track begins a little uneventful, sounding like the distilled '60s piano-soul that has worn out its welcome now, but spin the script Kwabs does midway in as his cavernous baritone (dear lord do we need more of that...) battles a rush of percussion and electric synths to where the whole track wails like a ol' Southern chain-gang chant. Though "Walk" is Kwabs at a more melodic "pop" stage than his earlier work, "Walk" is still powerful and uplifting all while being simply spine-tingling.

This year couldn't be more Kwabs-y as he has already released the critically acclaimed EP's Pray For Love and Right and Wrong, two sets I'm already catching myself up to. With "Walk" (out September 29th) he is grandly egging on an up-coming 2015 debut long player which is sure to be just as mammoth as the tunes he's already laid out. Bigger things are on the horizon, I'm sure of it.
