The project of Ronald Kaufman, Kauf took shape after moving cross country from Florida back to his birthplace of Los Angeles. He self-released his first single in 2011, and today he’s back with new single Pacify, the opening track off his forthcoming debut full-length Regrowth. Check it out.
A minute in, it bursts into life with fluttering bells and textures that fill the song to the brim, and the first lines emerge, “You’re carving soft what you don’t need, can I give you a hand?” The track is a lament on lost opportunities for closeness, but also an offering of help – the outside voice which forges a path that is unseen or feels forbidden. You can buy it on Bandcamp, here.
