Kwabs’ irresistible “Cheating On Me” gets the refix treatment, courtesy of Tom Misch and featuring vocals from Zak Abel.
It’s hard to capture such effortless musical beauty in under 5 minutes but Kwabs, with the help of Tom Misch and Zak Abel, have done just that. Cheating On Me is taken from Kwabs’ debut album “Love + War” and sees the singer lament a love taken for granted with soul deeper than the Mariana Trench. Zak Abel joins in with the recollection culminating in a gospel-like sermon. But it’s with Tom Misch where the icing on the cake comes, thanks to a subtle string opening, tender guitars and swelling cellos and violins during the bursting chorus. As a SoundCloud commenter called it “insanely, inanely, inexorably, inordinately good”. That sums up everything we think (minus the inanely part).
