Chill | OTR Enlists Kai Straw For Magical “Close”

Posted by on April 6, 2018

Kai Straw just released his album GUN in February, but now he’s back with a collaboration via the producer OTR. OTR is known for his chilled out R&B infused beats, which is no wonder why he enlisted Kai Straw to hop on a track. “Close” is a magical piece of music around love and the first moments that could potentially bring it about. It’s a deep, emotional track that also has some swing and dance-ability to it. This dynamic record has been on repeat for me and likely will be for you too over the weekend!

Chill, Indie | Kai Straw Exceeds All Expectation With GUN LP

Posted by on February 7, 2018

Kai Straw’s album GUN is something I’ve been waiting on since I heard the first single several months ago. A couple other singles have made their way out since then and they had me at the edge of my seat. The thing is when you anticipate something, you create an expectation for it. Whatever I had in mind was completely shattered when I ran through this LP the first time. It’s just incredible. The song writing is as good as it gets and Kai gracefully bounces between genres on this one making it a journey from start to finish. If you could only listen to one album this week, you’d make it this one.

Hip-Hop, RnB | Take A Ride With Kai Straw In “Cherry Corvette”

Posted by on September 27, 2017

Kai Straw just gave me the chills with his newest single. “Cherry Corvette” is the last song we’re getting before he releases his GUN album in full. This time around Kai gets masterfully chill with this laid-back treat. With the seasons shifting to a more cool setting, this is the perfect song to take hold of your playlists as you kickback. “Cherry Corvette” feels a bit like a hip-hop track, but Kai doesn’t dive fully into the genre, delivering his unique indie flavor. It’s more than a song, it’s a tale that I’ve had on repeat since it dropped today.

Kai Straw has been somebody who has been putting out some of the best indie/pop music you can find. He’s not stopping anytime soon, but he’s branched out with his latest single by bringing his signature flare to dance music. “Supernova” is about as future pop as it gets, with Kai’s amazing voice mingling itself between soaring synths provided by the producers Shokace and James Tha Bear. This single follows Kai’s #1 Hypem track “The Recipe” that I couldn’t get enough of. “Supernova’ is out now, but will be subsequently included on Kai’s upcoming album GUN, due out at the end of Summer.
