Video: Kwes – “36”

kwes_36_still_1_copy

Following the recent announcement of Kwes’ debut album ilp, the young singer/songwriter/producer is sharing the video for its lead single “36”.

The video candidly showcases the highs and lows of school-age first crushes, when simply locking eyes or sharing headphones could cause a roller coaster of emotions. The song itself was inspired by the relationship of Kwes’ grandparents, proving that giddy feeling of young love can endure.

His ability to craft unique, heart-on-the-sleeve lyrics is rooted in his production skills, which he has honed over the years working with everyone from the xx to Damon Albarn. With ilp his sound has evolved to an experimental take on pop sensibilities, referred to as Freepop by Kwes.

Debut album, ilp, out October 15th!
