Video: Kwes. – “Bashful”

London electro-pop artist Kwes. releases the video for “Bashful” as he prepares to release his upcoming Meantime EP. Kind of reminds us of the UK vocalist Sampha, who you might know via his affiliations of SBTRKT. Filmed in an elevator, the video celebrates the joys of “understated awkwardness” – an important part of life indeed.

Look out for the Meantime EP to drop on April 30.
