Kes – ‘Jolene’

Kes – Jolene - Ineffable Records

Soca superstars and cultural ambassadors KES THE BAND invite listeners to Trinidad & Tobago with their first 2022 release “Jolene.” Not to be confused with the Dolly Parton classic, this “Jolene” is a buoyant celebration of good vibes and rolling waistlines in the tradition of crossover soca smashes like Rupee’s “Tempted to Touch” and Kes’ own “Hello.” With Carnival celebrations paused for the second straight year, the band made it their aim to create a totemic anthem that will instantly transport listeners from across the globe to Caribbean shores. Producer Dwala’s mid-tempo riddim adds a touch of afrobeats and highlife to the mix, ensuring “Jolene” a spot on the playlists of any DJ looking to bring global vibes to the party in 2022.
Released via Ineffable Records
