“Show You” is the latest nod to Kasbo’s polished production abilities that he’s become so widely praised for. Creating a dreamlike acoustic environment through his varied use of pitched and choppy vocals, silky instrumentation, and euphoric drops, brings a welcomed cohesiveness to the track that further demonstrates his tremendous growth as an artist. “Show You” is drenched in emotion, evoking sentiments of longing and hope, inviting listeners deep into the paracosm of Kasbo’s psyche.
Kasbo on “Show You” — “When I made “Show You” I wanted to make a song by building a hook out of a long vocal sample by cutting bits and pieces together and creating something different. After writing the piano progression, the song came together as this beautiful soft-spoken love song which I really resonated with, it was careful. I like the idea of repetition in music, especially in lyrics. Even though lyrics might say the same thing, they have different intonations or meanings depending on the music that happens beneath, which creates these lovely nuances in something as simple a phrase repeating over and over again.”
