Khazali With His Groovy Track "NYC to CDG"

With a soft touch that floats above indie-tronica infused electronic beats, recent Kitsuné Musique signee Khazali creates a brand of alternative pop that exists in a space that subtly references teenage influences;SBTRKT, Sampha, Little Dragon and HONNE. Raised in West London, Khazali recalls his earliest memory ‘in a hotel lobby watching Christmas movies’ whilst his Moroccan-born single mother worked as a cleaner.But it wasn’t his childhood dream to become a singer-songwriter. Although always keen on the arts in some form, Khazali’s journey to his debut EP, ‘Going Home’, was almost accidentally born out of using songwriting and poetry as a therapy for generalized anxiety disorder, diagnosed in his second year of graphic design studies at a small seaside-town university.After a suggestion from sixth-form school peer and Slow Dance Records founder Marco Pini (of indie band Sorry), Khazali-who has not been classically trained in singing-began exploring his vocal range, and has found comfort in that expression. With ‘a naturally sunny disposition’ (Notion), his voice makes you ‘feel careless’ (C-Heads), with a unique style that spans melancholy, euphoria and dreaminess. Following the release of his newest single "NYC TO CDG" he projects a very groovy track that will certainly captivate your ears. Starting the track with an upbeat energy leading onto his soft and sweet vocals he completes the track fully. Explaining the track further it's about "a character looking to escape a small town for famous landmarks." It serves as an analogy for his longing to escape his own mental health issues only realizing there was no escaping himself. "It's nice to have a love letter from me, by me," he concludes. The track would be just perfect for a late night drive or just hanging out with some friends. Go stream "NYC to CDG" and check out his discography which is filled with outstanding tracks.
