5 months in the past, Kygo launched a brand new music, “Simple” with X Ambassadors. It was okay. However I had some ideas — learn right here.
Now, in March 2022, Kygo simply headlined the Extremely Music Pageant fundamental stage for the primary time and I believe I can confidently say it’s not what anybody anticipated. It was darkish, it was vibey, it was enjoyable and recent. It was not the Kygo we’ve identified who would play piano (although he did convey it out ultimately) and maintain the vibes comparatively low key.
In fact, there’s one thing to be stated about this not being a typical tour set, particularly whenever you’re headlining the principle stage at a competition that usually expects a sure sound. Regardless, most artists wouldn’t merely compromise their sound to this extent for one present until explicitly billed (assume “DNB Set” from home/dubstep artists).
We nonetheless have but to see if this sound interprets to his subsequent releases, and even different dwell units. However for one night time, Kygo fully took our breath away and we’re nonetheless listening to it the subsequent morning.
