22-year-old Austin singer-songwriter Kenan Davis made their debut on October 9th with their tenderly resolving single “Real Thing”. I already know that it’s going to be a track to turn to whenever I need a portent hit of emotion.
I’ve listened to more love songs than I’ve had hot dinners, but I can’t say I’ve ever come across an artist who was able to so easily draw you in by their debut release. There’s an assured and mature feel to the soundscape, but the vocals resonate with humility and a sincerity that’s so scarce on the airwaves that I’m surprised there isn’t a black market for it.
If you’re always on the hunt for smooth soulful indie hits which hit the evocative spot, prepare to melt into the gorgeously-produced soundscape which allows you to feel every ounce of emotion projected into the dreamy tonally-resolving release.
