Kai Straw – Gun LP
Building on the success of his last album, Kai Straw is back with his new LP, Gun. After being recapped in Spotify’s Best Fresh Finds and receiving support from the likes of Demi Lovato and K.Flay, Straw looks ready to take on the world, approaching this LP without any fear or hesitation. The 10-track Gun EP is a full body of work that will surprise, delight, and at times, confuse you. Art can be interpreted in many ways and it is without doubt that this man is looking to test and further the boundaries of indie pop music.
“I wanted to make something that embodies aspiration; the ambition, the vulnerability, the arrogance, the isolation, the hope – the want for a partner that sees the road you see. Ambition can be such a desperate thing; I see a gun in my mind when I think of the word. I wanted to make an album about that. The rattling in your soul when you’re grinding toward what you want from life. Something that felt like – flicking the cylinder into place, pulling back the hammer and saying, “give me all you got.”
