With the recent resurgence of the R&B songstress archetype within the grand scheme of popular music as a whole, it seems that talented, new Singer Songwriters are emerging from the dark corners of the Internet everyday. Today we introduce you to yet another budding Female Rhythm & Blues goddess from Florida by the name of Kayscend, by way of her velvety smooth new single “Vicinity.”
Equipped with a bubble-gum Pop/R&B mash-up style of production, provided by Mike V, “Vicinity” is a luminescent and colorful record that Kayscend utilizes to highlight her bright and multi-textured melodies among her impressive songwriting skills. The song has all the qualities of a hit mainstream record that you would hear from artists like Ariana Grande, SZA or HER, with the genuine creativity and complexity only an independent artist can provide.
Coming off the success of her debut collab “Wanna Get Drunk” with New York-based artist IamJoPaul, “Vicinity” marks the initial launch of Kayscend’s campaign to release her long-awaited debut EP. For now, though, check out the new record below and be sure to keep follow Kayscend on the gram @kayscend.
