Rising 21-year old artist Kai Bosch unveils his first new single of the year, entitled ‘My Jeans’.

Co-produced alongside Danio Forni, the song was sonically inspired by Lana Del Rey’s iconic ‘Ride’, and treats listeners to a spellbinding mix of dreamy indie and alternative pop.

“[The track was] born out of the ashes of quite a traumatic and one-sided relationship coming to an end. Writing this song was a real turning point for me and how I viewed this and other failed relationships I’d been through in the past.” 

“I always felt a deep responsibility for relationships ending, whenever something would fail I would blame myself and try to pick apart what was wrong with me. This song and specific relationship helped me realise that sometimes things aren’t my fault, and the other party might be the one struggling. My Jeans is a statement of sympathy in the face of painful unrequited love.”

After selling out three headline shows last year, Bosch plays London’s Bermondsey Social Club on the 20th April – tickets can be found here.

Track of the week. Based in London by way of Berlin and Cornwall, 20-year old Kai Bosch has been one of the most phenomenal finds of the week.

Inspired by the likes of Lana Del Rey and Lorde, this rising musician and producer fearlessly crafts dramatic sounds that are intensely emotive and utterly captivating to experience.

Haunting and atmospheric yet vulnerable in tone, ‘Blood’ feels reminiscent of the cinematic trip hop sounds from the late 90’s and early 00’s. Speaking on the song, Bosch says:

“’Blood’ explores trauma and mental health through the lens of a relationship and how it can affect the people around you. I wrote and produced it from my bedroom at the end of January 2021, at the time I was going through quite a tough time emotionally and I was really reflecting on how my emotions and mechanisms might affect the people I love. I wanted to embody emotional baggage as something quite visceral and gory, landing upon the line “Blood on everything I love.” Though the relationship in Blood was a purely fictional one at the time of writing, there have since been moments in my romantic life where the song manifested into reality – lyrics I had perhaps written before without much context suddenly held huge emotional weight.”
