Singapore based Alternative-Folk Pop singer/songwriter KHAi has unveiled his debut EP Strange[r].
Strange[r] is a conceptual 6-Track EP that explores the artists own perspective of love – that it inevitably ends one way or another. The EP is KHAi’s own way of leaving a trail of unanswered questions behind, in hopes of self-discovery, self-love, and self-acceptance.
On speaking about the EP, KHAi says, “I stand by the belief that we all need to learn how to embrace the pain that comes with a failed romantic relationship. This EP serves as a personal memo of tunes embodying the anxieties and excitements of falling in and out of love.”
The release of the EP follows the drop of his first single, ‘Wanderlust’, which was released late June.
Aptly expressing the spirit of the EP, the single ‘Wanderlust’ encompasses the chaos of KHAi’s emotional state not only in the lyrics, but sonically in the production as well. “This track was home produced, so there were a number of ‘mistakes’ that made its way onto the track, simply because it gave the unsettling feeling we all know very well when we’re fragile.”
The EP also includes previously released tracks, ‘Small Talk’ and ‘Victoria’. The latter track was released a year ago, marking the track’s first anniversary with a new accompanying music video available on Youtube. Make sure to watch it below.
