Joshua KYEOT S- Blocks ( Single Review)

Joshua KYEOT is a soulful singer/songwriter originally from Accra, Ghana and raised in Croydon, London.
KYEOT has a background rich in musical experience. Albeit, as a leading tenor in high school, or cutting vocals at university halls, Kyeot taught himself to play instruments and sing.

He is now on something of a crescendo wave on the back of a  memorable year that has seen the young musician release his own two-track project " She Loves Me",  alongside a sold-out appearance at Servants Jazz Quarters, and BBC introducing.
He now releases new single " S-Blocks" off upcoming EP " She Loves Me".

And what transpires is a beautiful woven pattern of different genres that combine to create a momentary rainbow of harmonious textures that would be beneficial for a regular radio release. "S- Blocks" takes a trip through soul, afro-beats, hard rock and pop with heartfelt lyrics that will keep plenty bating more.

The track starts off with a muted bass sound that skips along to a steady rhythm, before the introduction to KYEOT's sinewy vocals that captivate the audience with power and emotion.
The bridge takes a different direction with the screech of a heavy-laden electric guitar
sound that borrows influence from classic rock acts before returning to the soulful acapella of KYEOT's cries. 
I feel the inclusion of a guitar solo towards the end adds resolution to a track that feels like a man saying goodbye to a loved one. The dynamic mix of flute and a competent rhythm section rounds out a well-polished entrance for the man from Accra.

Joshua KYEOT will be performing at Sebright Arms, London on February 7th 2019.
