Earlier this year we wrote about exciting new indie find Kowloon, and to our delight, the artist is back with a fresh single. He dropped “Hollywood is Under Water” on Friday, and it’s a funky new-wave tune that puts his refreshing and unique talent on full display.
The song takes a light-hearted look at a civilization in crisis. Kowloon sings about the hypothetical of Hollywood crumbling and how society would survive after the fall of a fame-obsessed world. He adds a groovy melody to the apocalyptic message, creating a funky juxtaposition and making it feel like a sort of joyful daydream. It is a synth-laden and riff-filled adventure that just begs to be played on repeat.
Take a listen to “Hollywood is Under Water” below, and be sure to keep your ears open for more musical magic from Kowloon soon. Enjoy!
