In The Spotlight

Kai Straw – “Sugar”

Hailing from San Francisco, this singer and songwriter is not afraid of hard work. Every morning, he woke up at 5AM to spend time on his music, before going to his day job as a nightclub operator. Now pursuing his music full time, his diverse sound, forged by an eclectic mix of funk, hiphop, soul, R&B and pop, truly blossoms. His debut album, “The Tragedian’s Decoupage”, was released in 2011.

Steadily making its honey-coated entrance, his new single blends sugary sweetness with a diverse fusion of musical candy. With a staggered EDM approach as a vehicle into the song, soon a funky rhythm and electric guitar strums are drizzled over the melodic ice-cream, with his soul-dripping, falsetto vocals as the cherry on top. Exceedingly bad for your teeth, this sticky groove is utterly delicious.
