Indie-folk quintet KAWALA share latest single ‘Play It Right’


KAWALA combine stunning vocal harmonies with upbeat rhythmic guitar to create their latest track ‘Play It Right’.

The London indie-folk quintet’s new single is infused with joyful energy and sunny optimism.

Speaking about the song KAWALA explain, “When writing ‘Play it Right’ we thought, what better topic for a song than to discuss the difficulties of writing a song itself. It’s kind of set from the perspective of an internal voice guiding you through the many obstacles faced when trying to write a screamer.”

Listen to ‘Play It Right’ by KAWALA on the Shoot Music New Releases playlist on Spotify.

Formed in North London by then teenagers Jim Higson and Daniel McCarthy, the band  are a truly unique proposition within the UK music scene.

Drawing inspiration from the likes of John Martyn, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Staves, Bon Iver and Half Moon Run, the pair started writing songs together and quickly developed a close musical partnership.

As the songs developed they eventually put together a full band with friends Dan Lee on electric guitar, Reeve Coulson on bass and Ben Batten on drums.
