Pennsylvania-hailing emerging musician Kashi XO draws us into a carefully crafted world teeming with creativity and led by personal experiences. Having created a character called Dogboy as a reflection of himself and an innovative way to take us on a journey through his life, he has spent two years building a sonic world and story for the character to live in – and that comes to fruition in the form of 15-track album Dogboy.
Rooted in his deep vocals and emotive lyricism over a layered instrumentation, each track whether it be the bass-laden title track to the electro-infused anthem “Dreamworld” or sweetly melodic number “Nothing’s Ever Good Enough For You,” to the quiet yet soaring sensibilities of uplifting final track “Dog Days Forever,” this collection brims with nostalgia, bittersweetness, hope and everything else in between in a wonderful showcase of his musical versatility.
Singer-songwriter Roman Ali as Kashi XO has been steadily building a loyal fanbase with his earworm harmonies and soothing voice. After the success of his first album Kashi, he transports us into a world where each layer and note was carefully placed to tell us his story through his intimate yet expansive soundscapes.
