Kainaan is a promising alternative rock band I discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three months ago with his impressive work; Visage, which was released as a single not long ago in 2020. Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.
Kainaan is another exciting discovery, who has a very basic but also original approach to making music. Actually, Kainaan is a one-man show, sang and played every instrument on this song except the drums, which is admirable. I respect every musician, yet those trying to do something incredible, such as in this example, are definitely special to me. Those who are not familiar with the challenges of making music won’t understand this, but I do.
Visage is an easy-going song, built with progressive and jazz elements. You might feel like it is too standard at first, but believe me, it is not. Kainaan is showing potential here with his songwriting skills and instrumentation. I am aware that this song doesn’t have the best possible technical standards out there, yet these sincere vibes in music are always unique in some ways. It’s like loving the live version of a song more than the original version from the album. Kainaan, in this way, has reminded me of myself, very first times when I was recording stuff at home. And I can tell you; they were all beautiful. I had no knowledge of the industry or the examples around me, and I was just doing it for myself. You know what, I realized after all those years that pureness was what’s actually so beautiful and valuable about it, just like what Kainaan does here with his music. He has recorded a song maybe just for himself and wanted to put it out for us. We have a few more artists just like him in our Spotify Playlists, and I continuously listen to it. You know what they say, doesn’t matter how expensive your gear is, it is you who is making the music. I am delighted with the authentic vibes of Kainaan, and isn’t this what matters at the end of the day?
