With comparisons to Frank Ocean, Kyan is a freshly new vocalist and songwriter who hails from Cambridge, UK. We are compelled into sharing his new release, an acoustic version of his magnificent single, “Lonely River”. The song comes with an accompanying in-studio video that captures his live performance of the song at Abbey Road Studios. Commenting about “Lonely River”, Kyan says:
“We’re obsessed with labels, and I’ve never felt comfortable with labels and boxes or ceilings.There’s this expectation and pressure to “choose a path”, but it’s always felt more natural to me to be more like a river…Fluid, meandering and able to follow multiple routes to a given destination. Lyrically, that’s what ‘Lonely River’ is about, an awareness that you can be different and do things differently to other people and be comfortable with that. Art is found and beauty is made in the quirks, the mistakes and the freedom of expression. Lonely River is an anthem embracing that.“
Kyan is a new vocal sensation whose 2018 single, “Like Summer” got him into the industry’s list of interesting new-comers.
