So here you are, drowning review | Soft, poignant bedroom pop from precocious Kamal

By communicating that struggle to combat isolation, manage anxiety, and find a balance between co-dependency and heartbreak, Kamal is connecting with a generation that’s grown up against a uniquely chaotic social backdrop. At the same time, his undeniable pop song-writing ability is likely to take him far beyond the confines of that core following; that’s not what this album exhibits just yet, but so here you are, drowning remains an impressive indicator of what’s to come.
