If an indie coming-of-age film met a blockbuster from ‘80s Tokyo, that would be the movie that sets the stage for Kennen’s music. Born in ‘99, the young Toronto-based producer, songwriter and singer draws from a wide range of inspirations to create a unique pop sound – all from the laptop and mic in his bedroom.
‘City Lights’ is Kennen’s new single from his upcoming debut EP. And it is a chill pop song that will make you want to hit up your friends for a night drive, a 12AM burger run, or a trip to the beach to stare at the waves and the silhouette of the skyline.
Or just give you the inkling to hold the one you love, tight, as the sun sets over the California sun of your dreams.
Production is angular, with proficiency at crest – Kennen’s ambitions, per note to note, delivers with overwhelming value and emotional connection.
