KAWALA always wanted to say something with their music.
Meeting at Leeds College Of Music, Jim Higson (vocals) and Daniel McCarthy (guitar) instantly bonded, deciding to approach songwriting from a fresh angle.
Since then, KAWALA have rocketed. The band's debut EP was a breakout success, with Mahagony developing a close partnership with the newcomers.
The rising outfit return with new single 'Moonlight', a murky twilight jammer that finds KAWALA really refining their songwriting, adding a narrative nous.
KAWALA explain: "'Writing Moonlight' was really the first time we’ve set our main focus on a story-telling lyric and consistent harmonies over rhythms and instrumentation. We’ve tried to balance a super chilled feel with a heart-warming positivity, while taking you on a persons’ journey in search for an escape from their mental demons.”
An infectious, absorbing return, the soothing chorus carries an important message, about mental health and learning to sit back, and rest a little.
Tune in now.
