We were featuring psykhi on our blog not long ago; it was instantly clear how we were writing about a particularly talented and nuanced artist, the kind of personality that fully commits to exploring the magnitude of his musical eclecticism. Now, the London-based talent returns with a stunning EP, ‘Forest People’. In it, the listener will rejoice in the kaleidoscopic sonic universe so proudly championed by psykhi.
There’s something for everyone in there, from the retro, punk-inspired shenanigans of ‘Dyed in Wool’ – also taking the role of lead single – to the more emotional and fuzzy bays of ‘Don’t Disappear’, passing through the anthemic and indie-leaning title-track ‘Forest People’. Describing the inspiration behind such relatable and metaphorical lyricism, so common in the EP, psykhi describes: “Forest People’ for me felt like the harnessing of spirit. To find love for oneself and to be able to stand up for what you believe in.”
Marking a new chapter for the Ghanaian artist, the EP is set to take his career to the next level. We’ll be here supporting!
