Lu Kala is one of my favourite discoveries through running this blog so I was pleased to see she was back with new music. Her latest is a collaboration with EDM artist and fellow Canadian, Polun. It’s called Today.
By Graeme Smith
Today is a slow jam. Stripped-back, emotive instrumentals inhabit the verse but the energy ramps up in the chorus, both musically and through Lu Kala’s inimitable vocals. The story of the track speaks of heartbreak and the struggles of a difficult relationship and together Polun and Lu elevate it to a completely new level.
The track is Polun’s second single, after his warmly-received debut release. A classically trained pianist, he brings an ear for music and a sense of versatility to his genre which feels like a fresh of breath air. You can check out Today below.
