keatsu – Boil


EP / 14th May 2021

‘Boil’ is keatsu’s debut minialbum. The first five tracks depict the artist’s inner transformation and his growing love for both himself and another person. The closing track ‘I Like This Song’ is about the creative process during which his songs are created.
“I always thought I would search for sounds and words and then logically combine them into compositions. While making this EP, I tried not to think about that. As time went on, I found meaning in my songs, and I feel that the creative process itself was accompanied by a degree of unconsciousness.”
The yellow and blue colors that top the album cover symbolize the extreme emotions a person must deal with on a daily basis. “Boil” is something that tries to get out of the body. An unexpressed emotion that lingers and waits for the right moment to spill out with redoubled force.
The artist drew inspiration from the rich discography of the Californian group Red Hot Chili Peppers, from the frivolous sounds of Canadian Mac DeMarco, and from the production skills of James Blake from the UK.
On “Boil” we can hear 90s synth sounds and electronic as well as acoustic guitars. For the track “I Could Be Your Friend” keatsu invited an artist from Spain – Sandra Iris.
