KAWALA get all sweet and tender on major label debut “Play It Right”

KAWALA‘s new track “Play it Right” tackles the difficulties of songwriting, “set from the perspective of an internal voice guiding you through the many obstacles faced when trying to write a screamer,” say the band

It’s the first track released on the band’s new label home – Virgin EMI – and sees them follow-up two acclaimed EPs on the Mahogany label. While they describe their music as “indie meets folk meets afrobeat”, “Play it Right” sees the London five-piece make a sound that updates the tenderness of noughties indie, chanelling the nascent melancholy that ran through Fleet Foxes, Bombay Bicycle Club and Foals once upon a time.

“We wanted to convey the classic feel-good story line of someone building up confidence and overcoming hardships,” the band tells us about the offbeat video for the song. “Somehow it’s ended up as a super weird Sci-Fi ’80s vid in which we as a band come to life from a tape and act as a metaphoric encouragement force…”

Up next for them is a slot at Reading/Leeds and a 13-date headline tour in October.
