Maybe we should always start every post with the song. Because it is the song that always speaks louder for us. It has to make an impact, we have to stay with a good memory of the first time we listened to it. Kowloon is such a case.
We have no problems to say we might be a bit late to this party, but very happy we can still get to dance. Come Over hits us the right way every single time. Chilled but incisive, the vocals are a good part of its gentle power. Reminding a bit the chillness in Chet Faker but more pop and less electronic (but there is electronic there too). Semi-raspy, but infused with a funk feel, with a great part of that funk coming from a sweet half electronic sonority. There is a constant element in the back that sounds like a cool compass, it stays the entire song, we just might not notice it middle way. But in the end, it’s again clearer. The structure is simple, does not intend to impress, it sticks to its guns, and the guns are the amount and chillness of sound. No-brainer!
Kowloon is a musician and filmmaker from Los Angeles, California. His debut album with the same title – Come Over -, was written, performed, recorded, and mixed in his home studio in the industrial outskirts of the city.
