WHEN IT RAINS E.P
Released: 14/02/16 || Label: LUNAKIDZ MUSIC
Speaking about the first track to be released from his ‘When It Rains’ E.P, Kyle said, ‘I wanted to connect with the R&B side of myself’ and he has undoubtedly honoured this statement with the rest of the E.P too. The 5 track E.P, which includes the previously released ‘Explode’, has a decidedly R&B feel, with themes of love, heartbreak and passion.
‘Explode’, which premiered on U.S tastemaker site ‘YKIGS’, is an intense, sensual R&B classic that has garnered support from huge platforms such as 1Xtra and MTV. Relating the tormenting irresistibility of forbidden fruit, ‘Explode’ deals with the exasperating pain of desiring someone despite knowing that the relationship is harmful or impossible. The video, directed by Chas Appeti, perfectly reflects the tempting yet excruciating experience of an illicit love affair expressed in the track.
‘Hello’ sees Kyle giving his take on Adele’s modern classic. Perhaps a risky move to take, but Kyle puts his own stamp on the track, with his smooth, passionate vocals encapsulating the pain and heartbreak of love lost. The production of the track is softer than the original, which results in a stand-alone, classic R&B joint. The beats on ‘Making Plans’ are sharp and the vocals are purringly sexy as Kyle communicates the difficulties facing modern day relationships, including jealousy and commitment issues. ‘Dance For Me’ is an intimate ballad which relates the passionate experience of being seduced through dance. The catchy hook of ‘Love Language’ grabs your attention, with the female vocals perfectly complementing Kyle’s own vocals as he tells the story of the aftermath of a painful breakup.
Kyle is certainly making his mark as a solo artist, making significant waves on the UK R&B scene. Just last year he took to the infamous Koko stage, which has hosted the likes of Kanye West, with R&B sensation Omarion. A man of many talents, Kyle is also a songwriter, penning songs for the likes of Ne-Yo, Frank Ocean and Mary J. Blige.
If ‘When It Rains’ is anything to go by, it is an exciting time right now for UK R&B, with Kyle leading the way.
