Kae Chaps adamantly rejects the concept of healing because healing might come at the expense of his craft, then that’s one more thing lost at the hands which once held his heart. His uncompromising vocal prowess comes in deep black obsidian frosted with coagulated bad blood – a suffering of great inspiration.
The hype around Gehena is well deserved! The song is a cool and mild condemnation of damnation and is only hard to listen to when it is about you. The sophisti-pop production and the gentle belting temper with the inky lyricism, sort of paint the whole song in an almost cheery light, under which you can even dance.
Kae Chaps is a trip for tasking his still-growing audience with pushing past the emotional grit in his songs and deciphering which parts are inspired by pain and which ones stem from pure creativity – separating the troubled artist from the troubled art.
