Don’t be afraid of the night, because Yung Kazi has got you covered. His new album is an ominous listen, featuring watery synths and an infectious, retro groove. Standout tracks like “Seagulls” show Kazi’s ability as a descriptive songwriter, wasting few words as he paints a vivid picture for the listener. Elsewhere, Six Sev, Dan the Man and several others contribute to the album, sliding into his sonic world with ease.
Yung Kazi is in a lane of his own, and it’s a lane worth paying attention to. Listen to Don’t Be Afraid of the Night below:
