“Kowloon's, Late Last Night, is music for semantic unloading. Vintage synthesizers , echoes of a bygone era, where the calm bass and vocals draw a memorable picture.”

“Kowloon - это музыка для смысловой разгрузки. Винтажные синтезаторы в Late Last Night это отголоски ушедшей эпохи, где спокойные басовые партии и вокал рисуют запоминающиеся картины.”

A Break-up to make-up to break-up to make-up-again anthem for Valentines day. Gently surging bass guitar, low fi drum machines and guitars that warble like the warped images on an old vhs tape. A vocal at once tired, romantic, hopeful and defeated. A plea for a second chance, and ultimately a celebration of love. The song ends with a triumphant disco-guitar riff and the repeated refrain "I believe."

Kowloon is a musician and filmmaker from Los Angeles, California. His debut album, ‘Come Over’, was written, performed, recorded and mixed in his home-studio in the industrial outskirts of the city. Blending vintage synths, drum machines, and bubbling bass lines with vocals inspired equally by The Talking Heads, Peter Gabriel, and Sly Stone, ‘Come Over’ is 35 minutes of danceable love songs - albeit love songs set in a time of digital malaise and looming ecological catastrophe, with anxious, dread-filled lyrics that are as timely as they are post-apocalyptic.
