KWAYE will lift your spirits from the first note and has become a favourite of ours at Will 2 Listen. His new Solar EP includes the previously heard singles Cool Kids and Little Ones. Both are beautifully smooth and aim their motivating energies towards the younger generation in order to break through their false limitations. But a powerful message can only be delivered with the right voice. This is no problem for KWAYE and the pristine production which accompanies him. ‘Sweetest Life’ is just as catchy and funky. It feels more like a typical pop chart hit compared to its predecessors, but it combines elements of house, funk, soul, jazz and pop to great effect.
KWAYE is an artist for the here and now. He’s not limited himself to labels and preconceptions and uses his Zimbabwean heritage and cosmopolitan character and education to create a unique sound.
