North London singer-songwriter Kwaku Asante shares his new single "Illusions" which caught our ears with its sublime vibes and warmth. The singer delivers a potent performance with his soft melodic runs, heartfelt evocative lyrics that listeners can easily relate to. The production has a classic R&B component from the lush guitar riffs, layered nostalgia-inducing textures, and a smooth drum groove that gives the track a bit of punch. The record focuses on an individual craving a desire that seems far-fetched but he is still basking in the "what if" moment.
Asante's vocal presentation is the icing on the proverbial cake as he effortlessly delivers the goods across a wide range. For the most part, he doesn't overexert himself but knows when to raise the energy as the track progresses. Again, the production is far from the cookie-cutter as it pays much attention to the singer's ebbs and flows which in turn makes the track dynamic and fluid from start to finish.
He is currently working on a music video for the single. "Illusions" serves as the focus song from his sophomore EP, ODE.
