Release Date: Out Now
The emerging British pop scene is dominated by women at the moment and that is no bad thing but one of the few shining lights from the gents’ side of the fence is South London talent Kwassa. The yellow heated heart-throb first came to my attention last year with his video and song combination on ‘Moonwalking’ but he’s back with new track ‘Sad Songs’ and it’s destined for some heavy rotation. Combining the charm of Will Young with the smooth delivery of Justin Timberlake and the freshness of Years and Years, Kwassa has the feel of an artist who is already set up for the big time once he has enough of a following and exposure. Mark your cards ladies and gents, Kwassa is one to watch out for.
