With a number of infectious, upbeat releases spanning the last year or so, KEAT has quickly established himself through his proficiency at blending sounds of past and present musical trends which has resulted in his fun, recognisable sound, which is fully explored in his debut EP I WAS DUMB BUT NOW I'M WOKE.  The latest addition to the current synthwave revival in the music industry, lead single Good Friend (the last collaboration for the EP with actual real-life good friend and music producer ZIONN) is an ode to friendships and the feelings of youthful invincibility, and features heavy synthwave elements.  A personal favourite would be the track Stay (produced by singer-songwriter Valiantes). An unexpected stripped-back moment on the EP, the emotive and contemplative nature of the track provides a layer of complexity and depth to I WAS DUMB BUT NOW I'M WOKE, which doubly functions as our introduction to the artist.
