Known for his distant falsetto vocals and textural instrumentals Vietnamese-American singer, songwriter and producer keshi give us a little taste from his upcoming debut album ‘Gabriel’ with new video single ‘Touch’
On “TOUCH,” co-produced alongside Elie Rizk, keshi croons about a complicated romance, one that he is receiving mixed messages from, singing, “Tell me that you’re taking it slow/But you’re pulling me close.” In the vignette-style video, directed by Sebastian Sdaigui, keshi and his date have a dreamy day in Malibu, deepening their connection to each other on a drive to the beach.
There is an underlying sense of hesitancy in the way the pair catch glances in the video, hinting at the mixed messages that keshi croons about on the song. “TOUCH,” is the natural follow up to the first single from GABRIEL, “SOMEBODY,” which starts with the lyric, “Baby why the hesitation?”.
If there is anything to be garnered from the singles he has shared, it’s that GABRIEL will be deeply personal, romantic, and see keshi further explore the depths of his multi-hyphenate talents: songwriting, producing, and singing, to name a few.
On the album keshi doubles down on rich production, themes of romance, his signature falsetto, while not confining himself to one genre but blending lo-fi hip hop, R&B, pop, and more. he has a dedicated & growing fanbase and with the release of GABRIEL, he aims to take over the rest of the world.
