Hailing from London, rising R&B artist Kwaku Asante shares his new single “Angel.” It arrives along with an accompanying video and is slated to appear on his forthcoming EP ODE, which is slated to drop on June 25th.
Speaking on the song, Kwaku shared, “’Angel’ is about how selfish I am leading to neglecting a partner, not because I don’t care about them but because I want to be successful in music. The toxicity in the song is that I hoped that she would stay around, regardless of my actions, and carry on being my shoulder to cry on, the person I vent to. It’s ironic, given the song sounds positive.”
The track emerges as a throwback to classic musicianship; beautifully lithe guitar instrumentation giving an airy bed for Kwaku’s trademark baritone, and complex, dark lyricism to play across. An ambitious, seemingly gorgeous love song with enough invention to make it a real moment – sonically it’s a track to mark the moments of life. Watch Kwaku Asante’s new video for “Angel” below.
