Kwabs – Cheating On Me (Tom Misch Refix Feat. Zak Abel)


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).
