Kwabs is the earth-shattering soul singer whose James Blake cover stopped time for a moment–a chilling, stripped down arrangement showcasing a voice as deep and powerful as the connection to his fellow Londoner’s craft. Months later, it has now transpired into “Spirit Fade”, an original song produced by Dave Okumu, mastermind producer behind our beloved Jessie Ware’s Devotion.
It’s a whisper to the soul, it’s a call for action. Words sung to the sky kept afloat with every gritty strum of a chord and pulse of heart-beating bass. Landing safely in the heavens, Kwabs’ curiosities are confronted, as we’re left in awe at how seamlessly he’s intertwined sounds both raw and intergalactic for a feeling supernatural yet innate.
“As we walk through life/We look up.”
