    After years of collaboration, Kai has a beguiling new solo project. Drawing from past experiences but seeking to explore new sonic terrain, Kai has written a set of songs that is set to establish him as one of Nashville’s most unique voices. Tracks like “Perpetually Out Of Fashion” distill years of Kai’s musical influences - folk, indie, and a strong pop sensibility - into mere minutes, making for a listening experience that refreshingly defies genre and leaves us like a late-night snacker - satisfied but secretly hoping for more. “Sweet Abandon” is a bare bones slow waltz that showcases Kai’s yearning vocals atop a warm backdrop of old-time strings. These tracks are just a sampling of what listeners can expect from his Perpetually Out Of Fashion EP, to be released later this year. Recorded and self-produced, the Perpetually Out Of Fashion EP also showcases his instrumental talents – he played almost every instrument himself – as well as cameos from a few distinguished friends (his critically-acclaimed roommate Langhorne Slim sings a background vocal on “Baby Where”, and inimitable Appalachian fiddler Rayna Gellert shows up on “Sweet Abandon”).

    Comes in a hand-crafted Stumptown Printers Package, with artwork by Shawn Hall.

lyrics

You can get it if you want it, you can, you don't have to feel uptight /
Nothing matters like the moment you're in motion and feelin allright /
It's got you tied up and twisted /
Tied up and twisted /
Get what you want, it's what you want, get what you /
Get what you want it's what you want wouldja come on /

CH: Didn't matter, all you had to do was ask, it's not right /
It's not like you got nothin better to do with your life than tryna catch me /

It's a shame to see a girl like you, wearin those cruel cruel shoes /
Strapless beggin for my scraps of attention, things I won't even mention /
You're definitely gifted /
But it's got you tied up and twisted /
Get what you want, it's what you want, get what you /
Get what you want it's what you ready or not come on /

CH

Tryna catch me (welcome back Kerouac tryinta catch me) /
Tryna catch me (open back Sazerac tryna catch me) /
Wouldja believe? Wouldja believe?
Get what you want, it's what you want, get what you /
Get what you want it's what you want wouldja come on /

Whatsa matter, all you had to do was ask, it's not right /
It's not like you got nothin better to do with your life than tryna catch me.
