Leeds based singer-songwriter KARI delivers new track “Time”, a pulsating gem from outer space.
With three studio albums under her belt, KARI has had a lot of experience developing her sound. New single “Time” sees her move away from her acoustic roots and into electronic experimentation. The track evolves slowly and delicately, adding vocal layers reminiscent of Låpsley. The chorus opens up with the pitched vocal line “Give me more time”, as the ethereal vocals wash over layers of synths, strings and pulsating bass, landing somewhere between M83 and Sigur Ros.
“Time is about understanding that it’s okay not to know everything at once.”
Talking in a press release KARI says that “‘Time’ is about understanding that it’s okay not to know everything at once. It’s about those moments, when you hear a lot of different voices in your head and when it’s hard to recognise the truth about the situation you’re in. When I was writing this song, I was very confused and disconnected with myself. I felt like I really needed to hold on everything for a while, and start to listen to myself more.”
After already being booked for BBC Big Weekend and Isle of Wight, to name a few, 2019 looks to be a big year for the singer-songwriter. Her new single “Time” is a big hint of what is to come, and we can look forward to more cosmic experimentation. The new single is available to stream now, along with music video directed by Mikołaj Sadowski.
