[M]oss Kena is the antidote to factory made, processed pop. The 20-year-old Londoner today releases his debut EP, Found You In ’06, a collection of five post-pop, fluid soundscapes paired with effortless, expressive vocals. The title of the record is a reference to Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black album, which the artist was given by his mother 12 years ago. Kena describes that moment as the musical awakening that led him to explore his own vocal range and eventually to begin recording.
Largely anonymous (until now) but creating a sonic boom on the musical underground (he’s amassed more than eight million streams already), Kena’s is the voice at the centre of 2018’s pop revolution. Listen up below and follow him here.
