Kawala – Do It Like You Do | New Music
Kentish Town duo Kawala release their new single “Do It Like You Do” today through Mahogany Records. The follow-up to their ‘s debut single “Small Death“, “Do It Like You Do” pushes the band forward in natural but unexpected ways, a slinky, acoustic, summery jam that features hushed vocals that feels natural, and not cobbled together.
London born and bred, Daniel McCarthy and Jim Higson work respectively as a market stall holder and a baker, and live and breathe North London. It’s evident that the music was made in such a multi-cultural hub too. finding their sound and style whilst studying together at Leeds College Of Music they headed back to their native North London together soon enough to start forming the band.
Speaking about the track they explain: “The message in ‘Do It Like You Do’ that we want to convey is one of encouragement in the face of a new surrounding or scenario. The best way to deal with finding yourself in a new setting is to do what you do best. We wanted to reflect this through the upbeat positive nature of the track.”
Having already sold out their headline shows at The Waiting Room in two days and Camden Assembly show in three days – all before they put a track out – Kawala will headline OMEARA on April 18. Tickets available here
