Today, Sydney-based KESMAR has released his debut EP ‘Up To You’.
The six-track EP ‘Up To You’, is filled with dance, disco and blissful moments of indie-pop. Driven by slick basslines and throwback synths, the project revives the old soul of disco in a contemporary setting, tugging on influences from the past and present. There's everything from the glitchy, off-kilter appeal of 'Mistake' to the mesmerizingly slow burn of 'Coasting,' with KESMAR treading confidently through his latest surroundings.
KESMAR recently dropped a remix of his current single ‘Up To You’ which was played across community radio stations including FBi Radio, Triple R, Radio Adelaide and SYN FM. Pilerats claimed KESMAR was ‘impressive’ with Future Mag stating ‘it’s clear that KESMAR is here to stay’. Chosen as an ‘Artist to Watch in 2019’ by YouTube, KESMAR released his debut single ‘Feel It Again’ which was premiered on triple j program Good Nights with Bridget Hustwaite.
Today KESMAR has also shared a new visualizer to support the release of his debut EP ‘Up To You’. The track ‘Crushing’ was co-written with Jan Skubiszewski and Tobias Priddle, with the video produced by KESMAR himself using footage filmed from his recent performance at Zoo Twilights at Melbourne Zoo.
As the new project from Nathan Hawes, KESMAR, is very much a project of collaboration and experimentation. To celebrate the release of his debut ‘Up To You’ EP, KESMAR will be playing launch shows in Melbourne and Sydney next month.
