Josh Kumra unveils his debut single this month titled Helicopters and Planes. Having already found success alongside Tottenham rapper Wretch 32 as co-writer and vocalist of the hip hop stars number one single Don’t Go, Kumra has been given a taste of success and will no doubt be hoping to hit the same heights with his own solo debut which is out today.
Helicopters and Planes pulls together a catchy and memorable melody built up of soulful vocal lickings courtesy of Kumra’s distinctive, urban textures over some complimenting piano tinkering and a instrumentally dark backdrop. Helicopters and Planes is both poetically charming and haunting at the same time and comes hand in hand with a well delivered and tight rap solo offered up by rising hip hop maestro K Koke.
Josh Kumra is one of the UK’s fastest rising talents and the release of this powerful and fitting single can only help propel this star further toward the top as we are delivered with a creative follow up to one of the UK’s finest musical collaborations in some time. Helicopters and Planes hopefully provides the perfect taster of what’s to come on the singers debut record which is due to land later in the year.
