One of UK RnB’s most exciting talents of late, Kwaku Asante’s vocal is sublimely mesmerising. ‘Angel’ is an ambitious and seemingly gorgeous love song that is sonically a track to mark the moments of life, yet lyrically tells of a dark and toxic spiral.
“‘Angel’ is about how selfish I am leading to neglecting a partner, not because I don’t care about them but because I want to be successful in music. The toxicity in the song is that I hoped that she would stay around, regardless of my actions and carry on being my shoulder to cry on, the person I vent to. It’s ironic, given the song sounds positive.”
Taken from the forthcoming EP ‘ODE’ which is out on 25th June 2021.
