Returning with his first single for new label Pony Recordings – ‘Could Be Good’ – Caleb Kunle adds to an already stellar collection of what were, to date, largely self-released singles and EPs.

A year on from last year’s ‘Rose Hertz’ EP, his obvious attention to detail remains apparent – lyrics, music and production all feel finely crafted. Nothing’s overworked though, ‘Could Be Good’ is a laid back soul track with a classic feel that instantly feels like a welcoming place to be.

“This song explores the invitation of pushing beyond our presumptions with the hope that things could be good”, says Kunle. “In my personal life, this song symbolises facing the waves of ups and downs and trusting they’ll get you to where you need to be. It’s all been a growing process and this songs marks just that. Ultimately the song to me is an anthem of the triumph that can occur when we accept ourselves wholly and the situations that surround us”.

“With the building anx and excitement for the coming change, my mind meddled on the possibility of change ultimately being positive”, he continues. “In the form of a note written to myself I asked for more clarification on what’s causing my reservation to change, ‘It could be good if you could, help me understand why you run away’. Referenced in the video is the idea of navigating through spaces in our minds for answers, the line in verse, ‘how many nights do I have to wait alone, no point trying to fight it when we know'”.

More music is set to arrive before the end of the year and it can’t come soon enough.
