Leo Kalyan is a young London singer and songwriter who makes lush, silky, precise R&B and whose song “Fingertips” earned some serious buzz last year. He’s also a queer Muslim, which means he has a perspective that not many other artists can offer, and he sings about it in some moving ways on his new EP Outside In. That EP is coming out later this month on Godmode, the label that Shamir producer (and my friend) Nick Sylvester founded. First single “Silhouette” is a smooth and powerful piece of music, and it’s got backing vocals from Kalyan’s friend MNEK. Check it out below.
The Outside In EP is out 10/28 on Godmode.
