Words from KhakiKid For Voidmagazines
Khaki (Abdu Huss) has released his latest track, “Underbite,” and it’s a sonic departure from his debut EP. The song features heavily distorted and layered vocals that remind us of artists like Dijon or Kid Cudi, with electrifying hyperpop beats that switch up the track’s pace at breakneck speed. Despite being anxious about the switch-up in his style, Khaki has produced an undeniable mosh-worthy anthem that blends elements from multiple genres.
Khaki’s lyrics in “Underbite” explore the feeling of being lost or stuck in a dark place, something that many of us can relate to. Collaborator Carsten’s hook addresses the experience of feeling down and out and not wanting others to see us in that vulnerable state. It’s a powerful message that many listeners will connect with.
In addition to his music, Khaki is committed to creating a sense of belonging for future generations of his community in Dublin. As someone who wasn’t aware of his Arab-Irish heritage until adulthood, he aims to represent minority groups that are often overlooked in Ireland and demonstrate that there are places for them to exist. His upcoming Dirt Bird tour is an opportunity for him to showcase his growth and connect with his fans.
Overall, “Underbite” is a powerful track that showcases Khaki’s growth as an artist. The song blends genres and features emotive storytelling that will resonate with listeners. We’re excited to see what’s next for Khaki as he enters his most assured era yet.
As always, there is more to explore in the void!
