North London’s history of producing era-defining artists is one that can lay claim to
some of the UK’s brightest talents, from Madness to Amy Winehouse, Adele to Wolf
Alice. Now, KAWALA – one of the country’s most promising new bands – are the latest
to put themselves forward for inclusion in that lineage.
Centred around the core duo of singer Jim Higson and guitarist/singer Daniel McCarthy,
KAWALA aren’t your typical band. Their lush sound is cushioned with the pair’s
gorgeous harmonies, driven by Daniel’s unique finger-style acoustic guitar playing, and
inflected with sounds from genres far beyond the one they inhabit. In the current
landscape of popular music, they stand as exciting outliers, carving their own path.
