Otis Kane exudes cool on his latest single "Therapy", an honest song with a dual meaning.
L.A. based Otis Kane shows everyone exactly what he’s made of with the funk-soaked new single “Therapy”.
Whilst the song has a tastily layered melody, the lyrics also run deep with meaning.
“On a micro-level, it’s about my relationship and how things don’t always work out as planned, but we love each other and want to stay in it, and just need that bit of help to get us through, whether it’s self-medication or seeing a therapist” Otis explains of the new track.
“On a macro level, it’s about how as Black Americans our culture is lifted so high, and is the epitome of cool, while at the same time we’re falling victim to systemic racism and police brutality,” he continues. “The dichotomy between the two can make us feel so high and so low at the same time”.
Before he launched his solo career last year, Otis Kane’s innate ability for songwriting led him to work with some of music’s biggest names, including Pink Sweat$, Zara Larsson, Julia Michaels, Wiz Khalifa, The Jonas Brothers and more. Now, he’s due to release his debut EP, ‘Therapy’ on 9th October.
For fans of Anderson.Paak, SiR and BJ The Chicago Kid, newcomer Otis Kane is setting his sights on the big time. No doubt we’ll be seeing a lot more of him.
