London-based KINDER has unveiled his new EP, Feeling Gets Too Heavy, marking the first release through Lapsang House. The moniker of singer-songwriter Leo Wyatt (also label boss No.2), KINDER hasn’t wasted any time since the release of his debut EP in 2016 and the new collection is a welcome reminder of the distinctive falsettoed soul that made ‘Light’ such a powerful force. The young producer garnered strong support towards the end of 2016 from Amazing Radio, BBC Introducing and in the form of over 65,000 Spotify streams in a day for the first single, making his way into the Global Viral 50. With brand new material to whet a collective appetite, it won’t be long before this multi-instrumentalist is making even more sizeable waves.
Illustrating unmistakable vocal artistry as he layers harmony upon harmony, the effortless blend of warm, metallic keys and dusty beats have now become integral to KINDER’s sound. The classically trained pianist performed, recorded and produced everything on ‘Feeling Gets Too Heavy’, before calling upon recent MOBO UnSung nominee Magnus Thomson for the final mix. Drenched in the kind of melodic charm that will worm its way into your subconscious for days to come, KINDER’s new record is further proof of Leo’s undeniable finesse for songwriting.
