Kai Straw: Hurricane
There's no denying Kai Straw's vocal chords sound like they've been weathered down to perfection. You can tell he's got a story behind each lyric. I want to run into him at a bar, buy him whiskey shots, and hear about each one of them in full detail.
For now, check out this self-directed video for "Hurricane," off the singer's highly-successful album release, Toothpick. Soulful and raw, this ethereal soundscape comes to life as Kai stares straight down the barrel of the camera lens to perform with reservation. A simple yet powerful exploration of his conflict between ambiguity and obscurity.
