Nothing Is Low Key: Klyne, RKCB, Huntar

My mate Ross and I were talking at the weekend, over The Great Escape, about the term "low key" and essentially I decided it was really dumb because you can't low key anything on the internet and that's just not how the internet works. But also people on the internet are stupid, so I guess everything's relative. Anyway here are two duos and a human who my love for is anything but low key. Seriously, just search my Twitter profile for any mention of those three and it's pretty embarrassing really.

Klyne - Don't Stop

I never want Klyne to stop and that's the bottom line of this situation. I saw them at The Great Escape over the weekend and they were so good I could have cried. I didn't, but I probably could have done if I'd tried hard enough. But like, everything was so super tight and their vocals were nuts and I could gush forever. Their new single 'Don't Stop' is everything one could have expected from Klyne and then some. It's full of bassy vibes and packed to the brim with catchy vocal lines just like their debut track 'Paralysed' was. Also, the video is so artsy and off the wall and so perfect. Is everything that comes out of The Netherlands like this? I hope it is because that would be really cool. I'd love to tell you how many times I've listened to 'Don't Stop' since its inception but I lost count around the 30 plays mark. Can't. Wait. For. More.

RKCB - Elevated

After not being a massive fan of 'Open Arms', the duo's track with Demo Taped, I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about another new track from RKCB so soon. Rest assured, it's great and I love it. I don't know how they do it, but every RKCB song makes me want to cry. But like in a good way. Oh my god, this is the second time in one post I've talked about crying. I actually don't think I cry as much as I say I do in the slightest. BUT RKCB ARE JUST SO PAINFULLY PACKED FULL OF EMOTION. How? Why you do me like this? Can't wait for the Cali based pair to come to the UK for even just one show. That's an option, right? It is a possibility? If the answer is no, I quite simply don't want to hear it. God they're good.

Huntar - 4AM (In The Morning)

This uploading your music video directly to Facebook thing really isn't working for me. Apparently they're embeddable but it's been almost six months since the last time I faced this predicament and I still can't work out how the fuck to do it. The video for '4AM' (In The Morning) is here, you can watch it if you feel that way inclined. Anyway, anyone who has seen Huntar live (a fair few people) would have heard '4AM' (In The Morning) already but now you can hear a studio version which is nice, isn't it? This is good but after first hearing this song last summer, having to wait almost a year for it to come to fruition is a little... jarring. Like yeah sure, labels, other shit, blah blah blah, but it's just long. And the worst part is, if you think this is good, Huntar has stuff that's even more loads better, you'll just have to wait til circa 2021 to hear it. Can't have your cake and eat it too, I guess.
