Natasha Kmeto – Take Out

The Portland-based artist announces a new LP with a startlingly powerful track.


Words by: Aimee Cliff

The new single from Natasha Kmeto announces her upcoming LP ‘Crisis’ with what feels like a powerful war cry. With her stripped-back (and entirely self-made) beats, the R&B singer positions her voice aggressively close to the listener, taunting them with her cries of “who’ll be the one you’re taking home tonight?”, while a painfully slow beat and tormenting synth stabs gradually turn up the pressure.

Eventually climaxing in a whirlwind of immersive and playful noise, the track picks as many elements from video game soundtracks as it does from sultry R&B – a feat that Kmeto seems uniquely capable of pulling off.

Dropping Gems will release the ‘Crisis’ LP on the 18th June 2013.
