Who is Moss Kena? After listening to her rework of Kendrick Lamar‘s 2015 ‘These Walls’ we need to know more. “She just wants to close her eyes and sway / exercise her right to work it out”, Kena begins, in what feels like an atmospheric, dream-like, nostalgia. She invites dreamscapes; it’s illusory.
The chorus transitions to a funk-like stream of sorts. Kena’s voice holds a raspy power. “I remember you was conflicted,” Kendrick scatters the song at points. “Sometimes I did the same.” We’re loving it. Do yourself a favour and listen to the rendition below. You’ll be swimming in all the feels. And while you’re at it, check out her Instagram and Facebook. We’ve also thrown Kendrick’s live Ellen performance of the song in the gallery above, because why not?
