'You Never Do' by Kasia Konstance f/t KinKai

Quarantine life is unlikely to be an experience people will forget any time soon.  Whether you were experiencing it alone or with a household full of people, the challenges were different for everyone as we - as a society - struggled to make sense of what is continually referred to as "the new normal" and what it will mean for each of us going forward.

And while the past year has certainly impacted everyone, the impact on the music industry and independent artists and musicians has been particularly difficult to see unfolding.  Conversely, this can also be seen as a challenge that many have risen to - the need to continually create, even in less-than-inspirational circumstances, has led to some wonderful and inspired ideas and projects... which leads us to this excellent new release from Kasia Konstance.

The Polish-born and London-based singer, songwriter and flautist has steadily been developing a really exciting catalogue of single releases that fittingly display her talents.  From past singles that include the sublime 'Cosmic Dust' and its accompanying - equally dreamy - remix with Thelonious Coltrane, to the hip-hop inspirations behind 'North41', Kasia Konstance's music continually proves to be an exciting fusion of varying genres and styles which she navigates masterfully.

Current single 'You Never Do', however, features Konstance reinvent her sound a little and it's exciting to see this indelible talent prove herself to be just as adept at exceling within this lush, stripped-back setting as she does over her more usual complex and intricate sounding production.

The acoustic guitar-led arrangement, courtesy of producer Beau Diako, also boasts a guest verse from Manchester-based rapper KinKai and is a track that is currently scheduled for inclusion on Konstance's upcoming EP, due September 2021.  A project that can't come soon enough, the EP is sure to be a highly-anticipated release and one that demonstrates the boundless talent and versatility that is continually attributed to Kasia Konstance's music.
