KAWALA Premieres New Song “Hypnotized” on BBC Radio 1
- London-based alt-pop band KAWALA premiered a new song “Hypnotized” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Jack Saunders.
The song is taken from their upcoming debut album “Better With You”, which is out on March 4, 2022.
It was written by Daniel McCarthy, James Higson and Joel Pott. Produced by Joel Pott.
The band told Jack Saunders about the song, “Well, when we're single men, we found ourselves in very similar situations. You know you're finding yourself and other strangers room at 2am in the morning, thinking, what am I doing? Why am I here again it's the third time this week. This is often in Jim's. This is emotional song.”
They continued, “We've always just like very accidentally always just like hobbies. It's always been a little bit self helpy. And also a bit like, kind of like it's always been about journey and about kind of like progression, even if it's something like, we've never really talked about dating that much or things like that. But like even talking about this kind of stuff. It's more just like, well, this isn't great. How can we make things better? At the end of the day, like we're just out here doing it for the people out there that can't grow facial hair still.”
- The debut album comprises 10-track. The band made the album during the pandemic. “There was so much more time [during the pandemic] to think about everything that you were going through, that suddenly it felt appropriate to want to be a bit more vulnerable in our writing,” guitarist and singer Daniel McCarthy told Apple Music. “We found ourselves both oddly at the exact same point in our lives where we'd both come out of fairly toxic, really long-term relationships within about six months of each other. We sat down one day and we were like, 'We're literally in the exact same boat. Now is the time to start talking about it.' That was quite a pivotal moment.”
The band said to Jack Saunders, “Well, I mean, everyone is involved in KAWALA in any respect possible, you know, that's from no backman to managers, people who help us with the artwork of the fans, people who've heard us on the radio who wants to enjoy the journey if all these people are welcome, our album, our debut album better with you is all about giving back to those people. We've always we've always tried to include our friends and our family. And fans are absolutely a part of that without them. We wouldn't be sitting here with you.”
