KAIS shows us up into the sky with sizzling 3-track EP ‘Hot Air Balloon’

KAIS (Kais Khoury) is a Canadian-born Cyprus-based indie singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, founder of Hot Soap Studios and is a well-respected music producer.

Horizon is a Citizen Cope / David Gilmor-esque inspired ode to tapping into one’s inherent free spirit, which commonly unearths in the lovers’ bond. It paints an image of a man that once swam with his beloved in the magic of a summer night’s sea and attempts to reconnect with the ubiquitous “baby how’s your day? Turning to Gold is a hymn of lovers as they traverse life’s highs and lows. It reaches into metaphysical spheres while weighing on the fact that bliss cannot be found when one is merely dreaming. Hot Air Balloon is a metaphor for pregnancy.  As the process unfolds, whereby a spirit permeates and rises into the boundless world, a Hot Air Balloon rises into the ether (where our thoughts drift and amalgamate).” ~ KAIS 

Taking us into the warm climates above to heat up our previously frigid perspective, KAIS has created 3 tracks of equal quality with ‘Horizon’, ‘Turning to Gold’, and the lovely lead track ‘Hot Air Balloon’. There is a serene aura on offer that shall sweep you off your feet and fly you into a happier place, that is filled with a stunning view and so many possibilities.

Hot Air Balloon’ from Canadian-born Cyprus-based indie singer-songwriter and music producer KAIS is a memorable EP that might take your breath away for a few minutes. Sending us through the clouds and into that sunny sky that has so much for us to heal through the sunlight, this is a peaceful display made with so much love and expert skill you can’t help but admire.

Hear something rather extraordinary on Spotify and see the journey come to fruition on IG.
