‘The right romantic moment’

Art house hip-hop artist K-OS’s fourth studio album is positively titled and upliftingly soulful.

Art house hip-hop artist K-OS’s fourth studio album is positively titled and upliftingly soulful.
It’s called “Yes!” and features fellow Canadian musos, Metric’s Emily Haines and The Dears’ Murray Lightburn. The trio had been friends long before getting together musically.

“We’d been hanging out for years,” K-OS says. “Then one day you make it happen. It’s like your friendship expands for years before that and then you hope it expands for years after that as well.”

So just how far has that friendship expanded?

“Murray’s like an older brother to me,” the Toronto native continues. “We were always crossing paths and he had always said he wanted to do music with me. Then, when I sent him that piece of music, he jumped on it. It was a nurtured relationship. Emily Haines and I have a different relationship, but at the same time we were always trying to find a way to do something.”
