NY bred and Los Angeles based artist Kanwal has just shared his latest musical release. Called “Tuggin’ Me Back”, the single is a genre defying banger.
With “Tuggin’ Me Back”, Kanwal discusses the delicate balance between expressing intense emotions while conforming to society’s expectations. From feelings of anger, rage, joy and more, people are often encouraged to stifle these expressions and act in stoicism. Lyrics including, “got up under my skin / got me losing my grip / sometimes I gotta tighten my lip,” show that Kanwal is upset about his ex lover and wants to go off with his feeling but feels the need to temper his emotions. Musically, “Tuggin’ Me Back” enthralls with funk-fueled bass, striking synths and groove induced melodies. Elements of alt R&B, funk, pop, rock and electronica collide together for a seductive musical oasis.
As the son of an Indian/Sikh father and a Russian/Jewish mother, Kanwal’s unique musical upbringing inspires his eclectic releases. Entrenching himself in the world of music production in high school, Kanwal has had years to perfect his craft. Take a listen to “Tuggin’ Me Back” now and add it to your favorite playlist.
