Kowloon is an LA-based musician and filmmaker by trade. In his latest effort, “The Sun,” Kowloon synthesizes the industrial warmth of California’s most populous city by the way of grainy alternative folk-pop.
“The Sun” carries a lo-fi attitude that radiates an unruffled composure. Kowloon’s bright warm guitar riffs oscillate his cunning vocal delivery to create a cushy harmony that feels at once wise, present, and familiar. A sweet beat drums along the track’s underbelly before an unexpectedly jazzy breakdown winds it down to a final resting point. Improvisational and well-kept to boot, “The Sun” is simple, easy listening.
