Kwes : Rollerblades

Track artwork

Multi-talented London singer/ producer Kwes is back with a new single, “Rollerblades”, out now digitally and on 7″ via Warp come January 22. Like the wonky cyber-soul love-songs on his Meantime EP, it’s a warm, fuzzy number that splices romantic (and borderline twee) imagery (“Your eyes say to me/ Come rollerblade with me”) and mellow, folk-infused built around propulsive piano and chopped & screwed live drums. Watch out for the false ending about two and a half minutes in; there’s a lovely instrumental coda afterwards that manages to simultaneously express joy and sadness with almost classical eloquence.

About foamhands

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
