Kai Kwasi Releases New Single ‘sms’

    South East London musician Kai Kwasi has released his second single, ‘sms’ (via Play It Again Sam). The track, which follows his debut track ‘unt’, features vocals from KarimThaPeasant as well as saxophone and production from Venna. Listen to ‘sms’ as well as its B-side ‘ain’t that just the way’ below.

    “’sms’ carries the sentiment of what will be will be,” Kwasi explained in a statement. “It’s about the comfort to be found in chaos when you relinquish the need for control. I got my friends Venna and KarimThaPeasant on the track, both putting their whole selves into the work. It’s a luxury I’Il never take for granted to make the kind of music I’ve always wanted to make, and doing it all with my people. The visual for ‘sms’ picks up where my last track & video ‘unt’ left off. Keepin the same people on board, we just tried to have fun shooting again. We managed to pull the whole thing together in between lockdowns and I think we ended up with something really beautiful.”
