Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist KHAI returns with his first single of the year, “For You”. Incorporating a downtempo and soulful vibe, this is only a preview to his EP to be released later this year. The dreamy single is textured with KHAI’s dulcet tones and a heavy percussion. “For You” carries a psychedelic vibe and nostalgic quality. Painting a narrative with lo-fi house, hip-hop, and qualities of R&B, the artist is paving the way for his own unique sound.
Taking inspiration from artists like Kanye West, The Beatles, and Coldplay, Khai has a wide variety of influences that can be heard in his latest work. “For You” follows his previous success with his breakout 2015 single, “Do You Go Up” amassing over 4 million streams on Spotify. With his production characterized by layered keys and an articulate soundscape, KHAI is demonstrating his commitment to leading a new wave of artists who make bold strides in blending a variety of genres and styles into their music.
