Kwabena Adjepong, performing as Kwabs, is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter from Britain with a natural ability to create warm yet forward thinking electro pop, based off his first two singles “Spirit Fade” and the recently released “Last Stand.” Kwabs enlists producer (and excellent songwriter in his own regard SOHN) to help deliver one of the more soulful and passionate singles of 2013. “War’s over / but I’m still soldierin’ on,” sings Kwabs gravely at the beginning. Lyrically, Kwabs’ uses an open journal approach to express his thoughts, and his vocals do more than enough to sell the material.  “Keep my heaven just to keep me clean / Keep the devil watching over me,” he later sings. During the chorus, he exposes the scars from a previous relationship, as he croons “Still burning from the heat of your touch.” It’s those embers that fuel his fire, and all the while SOHN, responsible for the truly great “Bloodflows” (2013), keeps up with Adjepong with a slow burning, truly captivating production.
