K H U S H I will release his debut EP, 'Phantoms', on download and 10" vinyl through Laissez Faire Club on March 3. The Londoner has also been confirmed to support London Grammar on their upcoming headline tour, following a sold out launch show late last year and radio plays across Huw Stephens, Phil & Alice and John Kennedy.
2013 saw K H U S H I cement a sound as idiosyncratic as his stage name (his childhood nickname): October's 'Magpie' and B-side 'Never Never' portrayed a collection of beautifully constructed, evocative and intimately captivating melodies. Quietly momentous lead track, 'Phantoms' is no exception. A collaborative effort by Charlie Andrews (Alt J, Marika Hackman, Sivu), Peter Lyons and K H U S H I himself, 'Phantoms' marries his disarming honesty and yearning lyrics.
A born and bred Londoner who spends his days caring for the blind, KHUSHI's luck began to change when he quietly uploaded a few demo tracks online. He's since supported Laura Muvla, Dan Croll and Foxes, as well as festival appearances at last years Great Escape, In The Woods and Wilderness.
Picking up nods from critics and fans alike, K H U S H I ended the year with many 'Ones To Watch' picks and looks sure to be recognized as one of 2014's brightest new talents.

What's new in the music world this week?
These albums are not nearly as appreciated as they should be.
Listen to her new song 'Callous Copper'.
They might sound like they're from the 70s, but they way they roll is very 2020.
'U Kin B the Sun' is an album rich in texture and depth and one that quite obviously, and unapologetically, plays to Frazey Ford's strengths.
Listen to their new single 'Small Change'.
