20-year-old vocalist, musician and songwriter Moss Kena today shares his new ‘One + One’ EP. The five-track release features ‘Silhouette’ produced by Rodaidh Mcdonald (The xx, King Krule, Sampha) and latest single ‘Touch’. ‘One + One’ is available to buy and stream on all platforms now via Ministry of Sound.
On his second EP, Kena explores familiar themes of love and relationships, old and new. EP opener ‘Silhouette’ is, in Moss’ own words about “breaking out of an intense relationship and seeing the light in new possibilities’. ‘Silhouette’ is followed by a deeper dive into uptempo electronic production on latest single ‘Touch’ and an after-hours musing on finding your true love with ‘Back Again’. On EP standout ‘Ain’t The Same’, Kena reconnects with Toddla T for their second collaboration this year after summer’s uptempo banger ‘Real Connection’. The ‘One + One’ EP closes with 90’s inspired slow jam ‘Better Off Without My Love’, a track written about accepting the end of a relationship and moving forward. Every track in Kena’s canon is packed with character, unmistakable vocal delivery and sharp lyricism.
Since igniting his career with a zeitgeist-capturing cover of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘These Walls’, Kena has received major co-signs from every corner of the industry, from Zane Lowe and Elton John to Kendrick himself. Recently achieving a main playlist addition to Radio 1 for his debut EP lead single ‘Square One’, Kena has also received major accolades for his cover of Ella Mai’s ‘Boo’d Up’ recorded in session with DJ Target, plus support from Annie Mac and Mistajam. Following the release of his debut EP ‘Found You In 06’, Moss Kena has evolved from an online curiosity to a contemporary post-pop posterboy amassing streams by their millions. From November 15th, Kena will also be joining million-selling British vocalist and songwriter Jess Glynne on her UK arena tour - for tickets head to Live Nation.
