Sitting at the intersection of both within and without is KESH, a creative powerhouse whose universe finds abstract strength within vulnerability.
A multi-hyphenate artist, to say the least, KESH wears a multitude of creative hats as she continues to craft her idiosyncratic yet welcoming sonic and visual universe that is entirely KESH.
An acclaimed visual artist, designer and DJ, KESH’s music is merely an extension of who she is as an artist and as a person. Her latest track, ‘not gaan out’, is an ode to the introverts who find safety at home – a place to recharge and to heal. The soundscape of ‘not gaan out’ weavers and flows throughout the sprawling seven-minute track.
With an industrial DNA embedded throughout the track, ‘not gaan out’ transports the listener to the darker side of the night, and is otherworldly in its entirety. A stunning debut from KESH, we can’t wait to hear the creations she cooks up next as the core of a KESH track seems rooted in the sense of power within vulnerability.
Photographer Will Beach captures KESH in a world where you don’t need the artist right in front of a camera, which is pretty on-brand for KESH as you never know what creative output she is going to release next.
