You know we haven’t been sleeping on the talent that is Caleb Kunle, since he was one of our best new artists of 2020.

Whether it’s the soulful spirit of ‘Could Be Good’, the quietly triumphant ‘Call Me Mad’ or the bittersweet ‘Going Home’, the Nigerian-Irish artist has been super impressive.

Well, step up, as ‘All In Your Head’, the latest track from the man is a cut above.

Produced by London production duo Sunglasses For Jaws (Sinead O’Brien, Miles Kane), ‘All In Your Head’ brings the swerve and swing and is from a new EP coming later in the year on London label Pony Records.

“It’s an anthem about facing doubt. I wrote this song during a time when my doubts felt hard to overcome. Our pursuit of authentic expression can bring us to a vulnerable place and in that place we can lose sight of our inner voice, our motivator, reminding us how deep our passion can flow and how much strength is in our hearts when we believe. As the saying goes, self doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.”

Michael Kiwanuka, The Beatles and Nina Simone were all key points of influence when it came to recording the latest material which was done with drummer Oscar Robertson and bassist David Bardon (who make up production duo Sunglasses For Jaws), violinist Clementine Brown (Penguin Cafe Orchestra) and flautist João de Macedo Mello (Tankus the Henge).

Caleb plays a London headline at Bermondsey Social Club on June 8th.
