Last year Los Angeles based solo artist Ike Kawaguchi created a name for himself releasing a steady stream of solid and unique material. His signature “emo funk” sound is characterised by his emotive vocals, groovy vibe, dexterous guitar, and thoughtful production work.
On Ike’s latest City of Angels, he powerfully paints an authentic and realistic portrait of what life is truly like in the city of hope and dreams. Drawing from a diverse palette of influences including funk, R&B, old school hip-hop, indie pop, and alternative, Ike powerfully blurs the line between genres. Perfectly complemented by his smoky, raw, and honest half sung, half spoken vocals, the result is a mellow yet highly memorable anthem you will want to keep on repeat.
