KiLLOWEN unleashes electrifying track ‘One Thing’ ahead of his debut EP release

"There are moments in the song where I recognise my own flaws and problems and use them to validate my feelings towards that person"
8 October 2023

In the heart of West London’s vibrant garage scene, KiLLOWEN emerges as a sonic force to be reckoned with.  KiLLOWEN started his self-discovery journey at the age of 8 and was initially inspired by his love for musical instruments. At the age of 13, he delved into music production, and by the time he was 14, he was captivated by the intricate craft of songwriting.

Now the exciting 24-year-old artist drops his much-anticipated single, One Thing. This track serves as a perfect preview of KiLLOWEN‘s debut EP, Pub Therapy, slated for release on October 27th, 2023. Fresh from a show-stopping performance at the Reading & Leeds Festival, where he had the Radio 1Xtra stage pulsating with his lyrics, KiLLOWEN continues to solidify his status as one of the industry’s hottest talents.

One Thing is a tour de force, a lean and bass-heavy garage gem featuring KiLLOWEN‘s rapid-fire vocal prowess, and woven with samples from Amerie‘s 2005 hit, 1 Thing. The track showcases the artist’s exceptional ability to seamlessly blend killer hooks with meticulously crafted productions.

The essence of One Thing is unraveling the intricacies of someone’s true intentions, as KiLLOWEN explains, “There are moments in the song where I recognise my own flaws and problems and use them to validate my feelings towards that person. For example, ‘hear me out for a sec, I’m two drinks down getting rowdy again,’ or ‘I can barely stand up, but I’ll speak my truth, and that’s the difference between me and you.'”

As a standalone single from his upcoming EP, One Thing follows a string of successful releases, including the Snowfall Freestyle, the dynamic two-pack singles 2GEVA/Smile, and the 2023 hit Sober. The latter has become a sensation, amassing over 4 million plays on Spotify, 20 million views on TikTok, and peaking at #20 on the Top 50 UK Viral chart. These tracks form the bedrock of KiLLOWEN‘s EP, showcasing his versatility in seamlessly merging elements of UK Garage, Rap, Dance, and Soul

Celebrating a significant achievement in his rising prominence, One Thing stands as a testament to KiLLOWEN‘s undeniable success. As 2023 unfolds, the steadfast backing of KiLLOWEN‘s dedicated fan community is set to thrive, propelling him beyond the realm of a promising newcomer to become a beloved fan favorite and an influential new sensation.
