Premiere: Hear an Achingly Beautiful Track From Kwalia
Jordan Rakei and Richard Melkonian team up for their debut EP under Kwalia.
The duo began working together on “Rooftop,” a track from Rakei’s album Cloak—released via Soul Has No Tempo and 4101 Records in 2016—and officially launched as Kwalia with last year’s “Pulse,” a gorgeous fusion of their respective sounds.
On Pursuit, they continue the fruitful partnership with three-long compositions that meld meandering jazz rhythms with Rakei’s achingly beautiful vocal work—the EP also features a string quartet, woodwind live band, and heavy synths throughout.
In support of the EP, the duo have offered up a full stream of “Void,” a stunning six-minute epic, available via the player below.
