Kudos: the act of recognising and acknowledging accomplishments. Giving credit where it’s due, including to yourself. For Kudos, the Melbourne-based, Sunshine Coast-born spoken word artist/rapper whose incendiary debut EP Give we’re proud to premiere today, it’s more than that – it’s an ethos that he weaves into his music, the start of a movement.

“Give Kudos is a way to make Kudos something more than me. I want people that come to my shows and/or hear my music to be able to take something positive away with them. Something they can take out into the world and use as a tool for their own growth. To me, Kudos is love, Kudos is support, Kudos is acceptance. Hence Give Kudos.”

But as natural as this ethos might be to Kudos now, the Give EP was, as he puts it “a real journey.” Yuri Tobler‘s quirky, layered production provides a fresh backdrop for Kudos’ lyrics, touching on everything from sexuality to social expectations. Written during his transition from his small hometown on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast to Melbourne, that bustling city full of culture, coffee and all-black wardrobes, Give unpacks issues of self-doubt and insecurity within a framework of, ultimately, affording yourself the kudos you deserve.

And deserve it he does. In the few short months since releasing his debut single Plucker and follow-up Don’t Love ft Georgia Rose last year, Kudos has drawn praise from national and international outlets, embarked on his own headline tour, and become a boutique festival mainstay with slots at Woodford Folk Festival, Jungle Love Festival, and Rainbow Serpent Festival all under his belt. He’s also supported the likes of Atmosphere and Mantra, in case all that wasn’t enough.

Let Kudos take you through Give track by track below. The EP, and its title track single, officially drop on Saturday 4 February, followed by a six-date launch tour. It’s a motivating, spirited debut with the power to make you feel like whatever obstacle you might face can be easily defeated. You can pre-order it on iTunes here.
“I am a much more mature and confident person now than I used to be, and Give is the story of how I got here. I hope it acts as a CliffsNote for anyone struggling with fears of failure.”
