Hot on the coat tails of his recent show at the Sebright Arms, Kwes has returned in recorded form with his most sonically ambitious track to date. Rollerblades is finally a fully formed sonic output, with the skiffle like approach to sound still intact, Kwes then layers the whole thing in a think layer of hi-fi paint. The vocals are clearer, backing singers chirp In with sweet harmonies at relevant moments and in essence it’s a far more crystal piece of work. As always, each phase of the song sounds unrecognisable to the last, perhaps best expressed through the tracks synth-drone outro. Above all else, what’s most exciting is Kwes’ relentless, and almost always successful depiction of young love.
“your eyes say to me, come rollerblade with me, I will show you the ropes, so hold tight and do not let go of me” – Just gorgeous.
