Josh Kumra feat. K Koke - Helicopters & Planes

Towards the end of last year we featured Josh Kumra’s freebie download Call off the Search; for the Swindon lad who’d already guested on Wretch 32’s Don’t Go, his own music saw him making a confident stand at the forefront of a new wave of British White Soul. A James Morrison with infinitely more street cred, if you will.

New track Helicopters & Planes pairs Kumra’s distinctive vocals with a moody synthetic backing and the subdued rumble of lo-fi percussion. It’s a moment of enchanting, arresting claustrophobia; those haunting string sections lifting Kumra’s voice up to where it can soar most freely.

Released: July 15th.
