(5/17/20) Monty’s Catch of the Day – Fred Again..

Fred Again - "Kyle (I Found You)"
Fred Again.. – “Kyle (I Found You)”

Today’s catch of the day comes from the British singer, multi-instrument playing, producer, remixer, etc…named Fred Gibson. He is better known in the industry as Fred Again.., or the BRITs 2020 Producer of the Year. The 26 year old has done so much and worked with so many in his short career than most musicians that have been around for decades. He just released an EP on Friday called Actual Life, which contains today’s mind blowing catch, “Kyle (I Found You)”. This song beautifully mixes together R&B, trip-hop, electronica, and some outstanding jazz. His list of collaborators includes Ed Sheeran, Rita Ora, George Ezra, Ellie Goulding, Khalid, and Headie One. Now the video for this track is so cool and works well together with the music. Per his YouTube page…

“I was obsessed with Adam Magyar’s slow motion videos from Tokyo for a long time and then got to meet him on a freezing cold night in Berlin a few months ago. He turned up in a tank top fresh off of 9 months on his own in the Himalayas. The guy is a different one. In the most beautiful way. So I got together a bunch of friends at hackney wick station one eve not long after and we tried to make our own version. And big shouts out to all those lovelies who came! This is what we ended up with. The idea was that the video would come first and then I’d make a song to the video. So this is that. There’s one from the day time too which I’m workin on now.

Kyle was this guy who I found at an open mic poetry night and he did this unbelievably beautiful thing about meeting this girl for the first time.

Describing the bar as tho it was like a war zone of like absolute chaos.

The line ‘in this smoking chaos our shoulder blades kissed’ is as close to perfection as 8 words can get.

Kyle was also then super sweet about it when I told him I’d re pitched him into a whole damn song lol 😬🙏🤗🙏

I think let’s all be more like Kyle”
