The dazzingly inventive co-founder of Soft Boy Records, Kean Kavanagh has drawn others into his orbit, pursuing a unique sound in the process.
Fresh from a collaboration with Kojaque, he finds solo focus on his brand new 10 track project 'Dog Person'. Out now, it blends R&B song structures with hip-hop beats and even the odd slice of indie melodies, all sluiced into something wholly idiosyncratic. He comments: “Before any of the songs were written I knew I was going to call the album ‘Dog Person’... That just cracked me up. It was funny to think of this demented half-dog, half-person… But then that led me to this character, this shittier version of myself. The procrastinating side of me. The side of me out drinking to get away from that. I liked the idea of that duality, that Jekyll & Hyde situation.” Clash Music
