kid apollo Announce Second EP

Brixton, London based trio kid apollo today announce their second EP u the real star here out November 19th via Sweat Entertainment and share its second single “camera shy”.

New single “camera shy” was written and produced by kid apollo, with additional production from Tev’n (Joy Crookes, Rina Sawayama) and mixed by JHJ (cityboymoe, Mac Wetha, Olivia Dean). The new track follows the release of first taste of the EP “all on me” (and its accompanying self directed video), released last month.

Written about a relationship that left Jimmy second guessing and subsequently pulled in closer by the mystery, on “camera shy” kid apollo showcase a unique, almost hypnotic brand of lo-fi R&B. Masters of sonic intimacy, Jimmy’s introspective vocal turns weave around unpredictable production flourishes, delicate piano lines and soothing acoustic guitars.

Speaking on the lyrical inspiration behind the new track, Jimmy HM said: “This song’s about when you’ve met someone but for whatever reason, they just seem different to most people that you’ve met before. You never really know what they’re thinking/feeling but that’s what keeps you there in a weird way. I feel that comfort – in this sense – is actually what pushes you away, even if you think you’re wanting that stability.”
