EP Review: Kohla – Flux

Alongside social media posts about being skint and how cold everything is, the first few months of the year now feature a traditional moan about how festival line-ups are terrible, and heavily biased towards men. Not all festivals, but too many. It’s good to criticise the line-ups, but it would be more productive for all of us to support the artists we really like, and stick them in the spotlight.

Take Kohla for example. Her debut E.P. Flux belies her experience, and shows a depth of maturity across the four songs here. Final track “S/he” has been kicking around for a while, but it remains fresh, signing off the collection in style.

There’s an understated cool and confidence brooding and creeping throughout the collection. “TOUCH” is beguiling while “Pxrxdise” offers a greater sense of yearning. However, the consistency in tone, measured electronica and vocal delivery makes this an EP which passes smoothly, calling out for repeated plays.

With Kohla also creating the artwork for the EP, there’s no doubt we have another emerging talent in Scotland. By all means call out jaded and tired promoters, but more importantly, get streaming, buying and watching the talent which deserves to be heard and shared.

The Flux EP is released on 20th February 2020 via Last Night From Glasgow.
