Kai Straw: GUN

Kai Straw: GUN

You came along and you made me feel at home where i feel I did not belong.

With a quote like that -- lifted from "They Sent You" off Kai Straw's new LP -- how could you not forever throw down your welcome mat for him?  We've all been there. If you're one of the lucky ones, you've had someone there to catch your fall, make sure the tag on your t-shirt is tucked in, tell you they love you. Regarding the latter, that someone will likely not have Kai Straw's beautiful rasp when they say I-L-Y, but that's what his brand new, fresh out the oven, LP is here for. Locked and loaded, 'GUN' is a 10-track weapon of mass consumption; a captivating record that's both unique and immersive.

I wanted to make something that embodies aspiration; the ambition, the vulnerability, the arrogance, the isolation, the hope – the want for a partner that sees the road you see. Ambition can be such a desperate thing; I see a gun in my mind when I think of the word. I wanted to make an album about that. The rattling in your soul when you’re grinding toward what you want from life. Something that felt like – flicking the cylinder into place, pulling back the hammer and saying, ‘give me all you got.’
