Khi Infinite / EASE

AFTER SEEMING TO POP UP OUT OF NOWHERE TOWARDS THE TAIL END OF 2020 AND THE BEGINNING OF 2021, WITH THE RELEASES OF THREE SINGLES (“LUCY”, “DEEP END”, AND “SOMETIMES”), 20-YEAR-OLD GENRE-DEFYING UP-AND- COMER, KHI INFINITE, HAS BLESSED OUR SPEAKERS ONCE AGAIN! SHOWCASING A MORE COMMERCIAL R&B AND HIP-HOP SOUND THAN HIS PREVIOUS THREE SINGLES, INFINITE TAKES LISTENERS ON A CONSCIOUS YET EXHILARATING JOURNEY THROUGH THE EVER-ENVELOPING SOUNDSCAPE OF “EASE”. WITH SATISFYINGLY OFF-KILTER CHORD SEQUENCES, BOUNCY PERCUSSIVE ELEMENTS, AND A SKILLFULLY CRAFTED TOPLINE, THIS TRACK DEMONSTRATES EXACTLY WHY KHI INFINITE IS ONE OF THE MOST VERSATILE AND STYLISTICALLY UNTETHERED ARTISTS IN THE GAME RIGHT NOW.

BACKED BY PRODUCTION THAT WILL HAVE YOU CAPTIVATED FROM THE JUMP, INFINITE RECALLS THE STORY OF A TIME IN HIS LIFE WHEN HE WAS STRUGGLING TO BALANCE HIS PERSONAL CHALLENGES WITH THE UPS AND DOWNS OF HIS ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIP. HE DEPICTS A SITUATION THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE CAN RELATE TO- IT CAN BE ESPECIALLY DIFFICULT TO MANAGE A RELATIONSHIP AND CARE FOR SOMEONE ELSE WHEN ONE IS STRUGGLING TO CARE FOR THEIR OWN HEALTH AND WELL BEING. FOR INFINITE, THE SONG IS AN EXPRESSION OF THE ENTANGLEMENT BETWEEN PERSONAL STRUGGLE AND ROMANCE:

“EASE IS ABOUT REAL LOVE. NO MATTER THE ARGUMENT, IT’S ABOUT BEING THERE AND CARING FOR YOUR OTHER WHILE DEALING WITH SELF-BATTLES. EASE IS LETTING GO OF THE EGO AND LETTING RAW EMOTION IN.”

THE SONG STRAYS FROM WHAT WE’VE HEARD FROM THE OFTEN LIGHT- HEARTED ARTIST IN THE PAST, AND FEELS AS IF IT REPRESENTS THE PASSING OF A TORCH FROM ONE PHASE OF LIFE AND MUSIC, TO THE NEXT. PRODUCED BY FREQUENT COLLABORATOR AND GOOD FRIEND, PALACE HILL, “EASE” SHOWS OFF THE TWO’S INCREDIBLE CHEMISTRY, WHICH FANS CAN EXPECT MORE OF THROUGHOUT INFINITE’S UPCOMING EP, “TAKE WHAT YOU NEED”.
