On latest effort ‘Imagination’, upcoming artist Kai Straw¬†bares his soul and crafts a wonderful and immersive piece of art.

The track is a bittersweet and emotional one, detailing a narrative about a faltering long-term relationship and the attempts to salvage and maintain what they can. Musically the track is nuanced and subtle, highlighting the raw emotive power of Kai’s storytelling and voice. ‘Imagination’ is a slow-burning showcase of the prowess and accomplished polish that Kai Straw has as a story-teller and an artist, and has provided one of the most gripping and emotionally charged tracks we’ve heard in a while,

“I met this woman on Tinder” Kai details the story of the track. “We were talking, enjoying each other, when suddenly, her distance jumps to ~2,500 miles away. She says, “Hey, I’m from Canada, but I really want to keep talking.” We’ve talked almost every day for over 6 months (~3 hours at a time) and still do. But due to her obligations in Canada, and mine in the US, pursuing the connection isn’t possible. I wrote this song for her, to somehow save us, if only in a song.”
