When one of our photographers turned us on to the music of Kevin Krauter, we were instantly hooked on his chilled out sound. Krauter has a new album coming in late February, and all signs say that Full Hand will exceed what expectations have been placed on the young artist. In fact, his new single “Green Eyes” and its video should draw you closer to his music after you press play.
The song has a nice and relaxed demeanor. The stride is chill and let’s you into the sound before the guitar comes in and washes over you. Krauter isn’t going hard, but the arrangements are definitely above what he’s done in the past. When the vocals come in, you should have a feeling that’s more hunkered down on your couch than anything else. The video mixes visuals that cut between fuzzy colors to Krauter’s own visage.
