KUILL first appeared here on The Static Dive in May. The enigmatic young singer/songwriter from Leeds, UK had just released his brilliant debut single, “I See How it Is.” Since its release the track has earned over 400,000 spins on Spotify and it shows no signs of slowing down. The success is well deserved and no surprise, given the song’s cool Latin-tinged electro-Pop vibe, the singer’s formidable skills, and an infectious hook. You can read all about it here.
“Man on the Moon” is the latest soulful nugget from KUILL. Once again, the artist pairs mystery with keen Pop sensibilities. And this time he takes his sound deep into EDM territory. Lyrically the song uses vivid and somewhat cryptic imagery to paint a picture of love, infatuation and salvation.
During the verse the track has a Pop ballad feel. KUILL looks for solace in his love. For example, he sings, “Wipe these tears away and right my wrongs. Guide me to the place where I belong.” As the beat builds, his confusion and insecurity wash away. When he sings “I know I’m alive, everytime…” the beat explodes into a joyous disco flavored House groove.
Although KUILL changes up the production style a bit for “Man on the Moon,” one component of his sound remains perfectly intact. That voice is once again the star of the show. The singer keeps his backstory as hidden from public view as is his face. However, I’d be willing to bet that he spent years in training. Navigating complex melodic transitions with ease, his execution is flawless… and really beautiful.
