Buffalo-based artist Joshua Kucharczak (aka JKuch) is starting off his year strong with the fifth song off of his forthcoming album, Specter’s Garden. “Vale” is an emotional and hybrid release that at times reminds me or Toro Y Moi due to how smoothly it blends various sub-genres and sounds throughout the track. Kicking things up a notch, he utilizes an electrifying beat as a backdrop to his hopeful singing towards what the future holds. Check out a quote on the release from JKuch below and under that stream the single. Keep an eye out for his debut album, Specter’s Garden, due out soon!
“‘Vale’ is a fast-paced bittersweet song about leaving home to move onto a better future alone. The lyrics are about my personal experiences of having to leave all of my friends and family over multiple times for unfortunate reasons. ‘Vale’ lays out the emotions of being unsure of the future but taking it head on alone.” – JKuch
