Discovery: Kalisway

Kalisway is an American alternative R&B artist whose funky new track Spacedrunk caught my ear.

By Graeme Smith

Spacedrunk is unlike anything I’ve heard before. The instrumentals are stripped back, driven by light percussion and a looping bass melody. Kalisway’s smooth vocals are poured over, expressive and charismatic. The melody and the arrangement, while consistently sticking to their formula, ducks and dive and the track ends up in quite a different place to where it began. Most importantly, it’s a real summer jam.

Already backed by NPR and FADER in The States, Kalisway is definitely one to watch. Check out Spacedrunk below.
