Kesmar – Back Up

So you’re a fan of west-coast pop and blue-eyed soul? You like to listen to bands like Young Gun Silver Fox and Hall & Oates? In that case, please let me introduce you to Kesmar. I’m sure you won’t regret hitting that play button in the widget below. And if you want to know more, just continue reading while enjoying the music.

Kesmar is a Sydney-based artist, whose real name is Nathan Hawes. The songwriter and producer just dropped his second single of the year: Back Up. He wrote the track pre-pandemic, so he ‘really didn’t have a worry’ while recording it. “The world hadn’t begun to self destruct yet and I think that reflects in the overall feeling of the song”, Kesmar explains. He’s dead right! Listening to Back Up, you won’t be shocked to hear one of his inspirations while writing the song, was Michael McDonald of The Doobie Brothers.

The track is from his upcoming EP, which will be out early next year. According to Kesmar, it’ll be a collection of songs ‘with strong ties to minimal late seventies yacht rock, with references to Christopher Cross and The Alessi Brothers’. Sounds like classic stuff to me!
