Downtown Kayoto releases genre-blurring new single ‘Run from you’ via Other Projects.

Zimbabwe-born and Hull UK-raised musician Chiko Chinyadza has shared his latest single ‘Run from you.’ The new single follows his late 2022 release ‘In2you.’ The genre-blurring new single bounces deftly between multiple sounds for an exhilarating sound.

On the track’s lyrical inspiration, Downtown Kayoto explained:

“Run from you is a song about how I would run away from my problems, I’m pretty sure that everyone goes through a similar thing. Specifically, this was about a relationship that I really valued at the time, and when I look back at how I dealt with the end of the relationship I noticed that my behaviour was definitely avoidant. I get really prideful at points so sometimes I’ll just run so that I don’t need to deal with the situation at hand; run with no particular destination in mind, I just run and I when I look back I run fast… This is one thing I really wanna stop doing (lol). It’s not really healthy but without it I guess I wouldn’t have made this song.”

Downtown Kayoto’s new single ‘Run from you’ is out now via London label Other Projects. Downtown Kayoto’s new project is due for release later this year.
