As the hits are few and far between this year, at least for me anyway, I am looking forward to Kennas new album as the late Summer soul saver.
If you have read Malcom Gladwells Blink you may remember reading about Kenna. In the chapter "Kennas Dilemma" Gladwell recounted how even though all the record companies loved him, and there was a great buzz about him on the internet, and Paul Mc Guinness declared "This man right here, he's going to change the World" his 2002 album Sacred Cow failed to break through ostensibly because it couldn't get top 40 Radio Play in the US. It seems that people found him difficult to classify, they just didn't understand.
I think he sounds like a mix up of Depeche Mode and Radiohead with a pop dance edge, Out Of Control for one is a real grower and it's featured on the teaser below
His time may be now. Make Sure They See My Face, his new album is on the way and you can hear a selection from it on his myspace.
