KiLLOWEN, the electrifying West London garage sensation who has been causing ripples in the music scene, is delighted to announce the launch of his highly-anticipated single, “One Thing“. This enthralling track offers a sneak peek into KiLLOWEN’s forthcoming debut EP, Pub Therapy, set to land on October 27th, 2023. Following a memorable performance at the Reading & Leeds Festival, where he left the Radio 1Xtra stage reverberating with his lyrics, KiLLOWEN continues to cement his position as one of the hottest talents in the industry at this moment.
“One Thing” is a lean and bass-heavy garage masterpiece, graced by KiLLOWEN’s rapid-fire vocal delivery and featuring samples from Amerie’s 2005 hit, “1 Thing”. This new track showcases the 24-year-old’s exceptional ability to blend killer hooks with impeccably crafted productions.
“‘One Thing’ tells the story of deciphering someone’s true intentions,” KiLLOWEN explains about the essence of the song. “There are moments in the song where I recognize my own flaws and problems and use them to validate my feelings towards that person. For example, ‘hear me out for a sec, I’m two drinks down getting rowdy again,’ or ‘I can barely stand up, but I’ll speak my truth, and that’s the difference between me and you.'”
As a standalone single from KiLLOWEN’s debut EP, Pub Therapy, “One Thing” follows his recent releases, including “Snowfall Freestyle*” the two-pack singles “2GEVA/Smile,” and his 2023 hit single, “Sober.” The latter has amassed over 4 million plays on Spotify alone, garnered 20 million views on TikTok, and peaked at #20 on the Top 50 UK Viral chart. These preceding works serve as the foundation of KiLLOWENS EP, illustrating his multifaceted talent in creating music that seamlessly merges elements of UK Garage, Rap, Dance, and Soul.
KiLLOWEN is a self-driven artist, having meticulously built his music career from the ground up. He picked up his first instrument at the age of 8, started producing at 13, and began writing at 14. In less than a decade, KiLLOWEN has pushed the boundaries of his craft, collaborating with a remarkable list of artists, including p-rallel, Arlo Parks, Finn Foxell, and more. The release of “One Thing” stands as a testament to his burgeoning stardom, and with an impressive monthly listenership of over 286k on Spotify, KiLLOWEN’s dedicated fan base continues to grow with each successive release. Given his current trajectory, it is virtually guaranteed that 2023 will mark KiLLOWEN’s transformation from a promising newcomer into a beloved fan favourite and a commanding superstar.
