Rising London R&B star Kwaku Asante provides us with a superb end to his stellar year with the soulful “Fantasy”, a follow-up to the quietly powerful and beautifully transparent “Worth“.
“Fantasy” is a fresh new release that brings the back the essence of a stripped back arrangement. With the solemn sounds of the piano at the very core and a truly yearning vocal performance, it serves as a timeless love song with a modern face. A meditative ode to the power passion can bring, while retaining that edge of romantic longing.
Having just supported Jay Prince at his recent London O’Meara show, and with support already coming from the likes of Tom Misch as well as Rinse FM, Worldwide FM and Hilly Dilly, it’s already evident that Asante is a name not to sleep on.
With a perfect amalgam of pure vocal talent and effortless style, Kwakus emergence onto the scene from the very depths of his university bedroom is a bold one and the young London artist already seems destined for very big things this year.
