Last month Kwes dropped the first single off his upcoming EP Meantime entitled ‘Bashful’ – today, a second track off the same project has been released.

At it’s core ‘Igoyn’ is a soulful track but a lot of different elements have gone into it – from the celestial xylophone, to the grungy guitar heard under an army of layers which include typewriter effects, beautifully arranged keys and moreĀ – all helping to conclude a wonderful 7 minute escapade of sounds, colours and shapes.

Kwes has certainly hit a creative stride here, having worked with a long list of impressive acts (The xx, Joe Goddard, Damon Albarn etc), it’s great to see him out in front, showcasing his talents as a solo artist.

Meantime is due out April 30th via Warp Records.
