KAIRO Tug at the Heartstrings With Debut Single "Someone Like You"
If you were wondering how stealthy supportive your identical twin brother could be on a harmonized track - one moment sounding like a latent effect, the next perfectly bouncing above and below the vocals to a wondrous resonance - then KAIRO's debut single resolves the question with melodious effect.
KAIRO is comprised of Nigerian-born brothers Ej and Ak, both twenty-years-old, who won the US visa lottery and settled in Texas before wowing the internet with their treasures of the human voice. After amassing a huge following on TikTok as the CoverBoys, OTW favorites Take & Thrown Records decided to make the pair their inaugural signing for their record imprint.
The gift is ours to enjoy and the euphonious effect on "Someone Like You" is a rich endeavor, a track remarkable for all its doesn't need, a pervasive organic quality of goodness so rare set against the picks and plucks of an acoustic guitar. For a debut single, the promise of Kairo's talents is delectable, and we will be very keenly following their next few releases, including their debut EP set to release May. There isn't anyone quite like KAIRO.
