A trio hailing from England, kid apollo have found a niche in the alt R&B realm. The three boys just put out their debut EP on Sweat Entertainment, a five-track project that is brimming with bittersweet vibes. One of the compilation’s singles, “i been up to things i don’t think i should be.”, is a perfect example of the brooding and moody music the new group has been making.
For “i been up to things i don’t think i should be.”, the group starts off slowly, with light and elegant piano keys in the first verse. Singer Jimmy HM’s soft and sweet vocals are a lovely surprise, followed by the percussion kicking in and the tempo turning up a notch. As he croons about using some not-so-healthy coping mechanisms to deal with things, you can sense the raw emotion in his voice. It’s a little lo-fi treat that would e a great addition to chill playlists.
You can play the song below. Enjoy!
