RISING LONDON ARTIST KHUSHI UNVEILS NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR “LIKE A CITY”

DEBUT ALBUM STRANGE SEASONS SET FOR RELEASE JANUARY 24 ON WARNER RECORDS

“Khushi is defining his own evocative sound as a solo artist...he leans into reverberating echoes, delicate falsettos and hums, building tension to cinematic release. But the lyrics are intimate, delivered in a kind of confidential whisper.” —TIME

Rising London vocalist, songwriter and producer Khushi unveils a new music video for “Like A City” today—WATCH HERE. The video was filmed in Los Angeles and was directed by Erik Rojas. The track is the latest to be revealed from Strange Seasons, Khushi’s debut album set for release January 24, 2020 on Warner Records. Pre-save the album HERE.

"Los Angeles felt like the perfect place to reflect the chorus line ‘like a city drowning in its own possibilities,’" explains Khushi. "We wanted to convey the passing of a full day so we were up shooting at dawn in the beautiful Trebek Open Space and ended in downtown at sunset. We wanted this sped up passing of time to emphasize the sometimes overwhelming possibilities in a big city and in turn the endless possibilities in ourselves."


This video follows the premiere of Khushi’s friend and collaborator James Blake’s remix of “This Is, Pt. 1,” as well as previous album tracks “From Me” and “Freedom Falls,” which Pigeons & Planes praised Khushi’s “ear for ambitious, orchestral arrangements.”

Khushi recorded and produced Strange Seasons in a shed in east London over the past six years, pulling from more than a decade of songs and demos. Though Khushi originally released music under his own name in the early years of this decade, he took a several-year break to work on other music before returning to this deeply personal project, isolating himself in the shed to find his purest creative expressions. Toward the end of the process, Khushi was introduced to James Blake, who fell in love with the album and offered to mix it. This in turn led to Blake asking Khushi to contribute to his acclaimed album Assume Form, and to join him on his recent North American and U.K. tours as support.

Further critical praise for Khushi:

“A work of delicate poise.” —Clash

“Captivating” —Hypebeast

“Khushi reaches new heights with his airy ambience…” —The Line of Best Fit

“Cavernous arrangements and seamlessly crafted production that foreshadow what will undoubtedly be a profoundly impactful debut album.” —Ones To Watch

“A spellbinding effort…delivers a serious gut punch.” —Lyrical Lemonade


Khushi was born and raised in London and lives in Los Angeles. He first rose to prominence with 2013’s “Magpie” and 2014’s “Phantoms.” Of Indian descent, he is also a member of the critically acclaimed band Strong Asian Mothers, U.K. favorites who have played festivals across Europe and spent time on the A-list of BBC radio playlists and toured widely.
