Let us start off by introducing this “new” Australian artist, Kamaliza. Kamaliza is the voice to the duo Olympic Ayres who’s gone solo since August last year. His debut single is Zermatt, a minimalist house tune that introduced Kamaliza as a solo artist. It doesn’t fall too apart from his previous work, but it definitely gives him a distinctive sound.
Last week, he released Zanzibar. This is a single that flows more towards an electronic, R&B spiced, melodic vibe.
Kamaliza felt emotionally connected to the song and so did we. What he stated (above) is definitely true. It’s easy to understand Zanzibar is a single that made sense from the first second it came to his mind. The composition of instrumentals and the complementarity of his vocals, that add the warmth that really accentuates the song, is absolutely brilliant. Even more brilliant is the way they used a machine – deprived of feelings – as centerpiece of the music video. This dichotomy speaks strong words of direction and emotion, and we get it. Loud and clear.
