The KYN – “Pure Imagination”

“Pure Imagination” presents a lush modern spin on the Willy Wonka classic, representing the latest single from Denver-based artist The KYN. Halle Tomlinson‘s enchanting vocals feature. The “if you really want to see paradise,” segment drives joyously into the wordless vocal enthusiasm thereafter, as fluid guitars echo a jazzy/lounge appeal with a Bossa nova flair.

The backing vocals re-emerge with warmly melodic qualities in the final minute, as the conclusion injects a twinkling charm amidst the various vocal layers. “Pure Imagination” is a satiating, re-energized take on this nostalgic tune, which marks another success from The KYN, the project of producer Callum Bair, who impressed in April with the single “Own Way.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2023’ Spotify playlist.
