Khazali is a fast-rising singer-songwriter from the United Kingdom. Not too long ago, he released an official visualizer for his brand-new synthpop gem, “Magic,” masterfully produced by Joe Brown, renowned for his acclaimed work on XL Records with Richard Russell and Låpsley. The visualizer shows Khazali performing passionately against a sky-blue backdrop.
Khazali – “Magic” official visualizer
“Every time I woke up, you were there. You told me you want me, grab you a coffee. 40 days, thought I’d feel new. Tell me I’m not the only one, I couldn’t bear to be alone. Turn around, make me feel new. We didn’t have to make this change; I couldn’t live without your ways.” – lyrics
‘Magic’ finds Khazali dealing with themes of love and grief. With a heavy heart, he sings, “If this isn’t real love, real love, I’ll just hold my cards close.” Khazali wants to believe what he and his partner have is real love, but he isn’t sure. “I know that it’s magic, I know that we have it,” he sings on the soaring chorus, pleading to save his adventurous relationship with his significant other.
‘Magic’ contains moving lyricism, addictive melodies, and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with anyone who wants a chance, to be honest and say sorry to their companion. The heartfelt tune possesses thudding drums, piano chords, and bass-laden instrumentation flavored with contemporary pop and synth-pop elements. Furthermore, “Magic” offers a glimpse of Khazali’s upcoming EP, “Born For This.”
“We could take it real slow”
With a knack for catchy, earworm-like melodies, Khazali has created a brand of pop that spans melancholy, euphoria, and dreaminess, not unlike the instantly relatable sounds of Arlo Parks, Dua Lipa, and Alfie Templeman, with an indie edge reminiscent of The xx and Metronomy.
Amassing 10M+ streams despite only releasing his first EP last year, Khazali is hailed as the tastemaker favorite for 2023, with DJ Jaguar Bingham (BBC Radio 1 Dance) among the industry leaders naming him the artist as someone we should all be “really excited about.” With a spot at this year’s Radio 1 Stage at Reading Festival on the 25th of August, his rising star has already been solidified by BBC Radio 1’s Future Pop and Spotify’s Radar UK.
Khazali – “Going Home, Vol. 1”
Khazali’s debut EP, “Going Home, Vol. 1,” released in April 2021 via Kitsuné Musique, grew quickly to become the label’s top-performing new release, and aroused a keen curiosity from a breadth of tastemakers, landing Khazali coveted spots on Awkwafina’s TV show Awkwafina is Nora from Queens, Spotify’s top-tier playlists such as Chill Dance, Alt R&B, Alt-Pop, and Ibiza Sunset – as well as consistent support from BBC Radio 1, 1xtra, and BBC Introducing’s Hot List. More recently, Khazali was also featured this year on Folamour’s stellar single “</3 Heartbroken.”
Now with his upcoming EP, “Born For This,” Khazali is set to deliver a captivating fusion of classic pop for the modern era, drawing inspiration from his teenage record-sleeve collection of iconic records like “The Fame” by Lady Gaga, “In the Lonely Hour” by Sam Smith, “Lungs” by Florence + the Machine, and Jungle’s self-titled debut album.
