Kwabs - 'Love + War'

9/10

Very few new artists got us as excited as Kwabs last year. After the release of his debut EP 'Wrong Or Right' at the beginning of 2014, you could tell that this young man was something special. His mix of soulful vocals and anthemic productions made him a hugely engaging new talent and now about to release his debut album, 'Love + War', how has his sound developed in the lead up to his first official full-length release?

Effectively, 'Love + War' is simply more of the same Kwabs we've always heard. But rather than focus on his more sombre tracks, the album has far more energy running through it, giving it a much faster pace than some of his previous EPs. While his voice still remains as immaculate as ever, it is the playful and creative production of this new record which really stands out and makes for a hugely enjoyable listen.

It is certainly the debut album we were all hoping for. Professional and succinct throughout, 'Love + War' is the perfect introduction to a voice like Kwabs, one that stretches his abilities and showcases his eclectic nature.
