Keir is as hard to check into a tick box on the indie-pop spectrum as the compellingly alternative Ezra Furman. Making music with an eclectic range of influences, from soul, R&B and indie to jazz, futro and electronica, Keir is equally as mystifying.
‘Probably’ struts in perplexingly powerful pop. Keir’s soulful and attitude complete vocals pounce across a strong alternative approach to hit music. “I only walked into myself in order to believe…” stirs Keir with arresting personality, as a funk of keys and lunges of bass transcend into authority.
Searing a commanding presence, Keir has already seen radio play from BBC 6 Music and Radio 1, with festival appearances at The Great Escape and Secret Garden Party already crossed off the rising artists to-do list. Whilst pop can often seem unvaried, Keir is here to inject some unique colour, charisma and most importantly character into alt-pop. Ezra Furman’s fashioned alternative and expressive pop realms could have a new entrant on the upsurge.
