New York based singer-songwriter Kendra Morris has just released her debut single and video for “Concrete Waves” on Wax Poetics Records. Kendra randomly thought of the phrase “concrete waves,” initially inspiring the soulful, seductive track. “The word popped into my head one afternoon after hanging out with someone I shouldn’t have been and I decided to do some internet pondering over the phrase to see what appeared and all these skateboarding sites and images came up,” she explains.
“The metaphor dawned on me, it’s the comparison of riding a concrete wave as opposed to riding an ocean wave. You do these crazy things from pavement to air and you are soaring but if you fall you’re caught by the gravel and pebbles,” Kendra says. “But it was so great for those few seconds in the air or gliding down that ramp.”
Kendra Morris’ full length debut will be released in the spring of 2012, but you can download her first single, “Concrete Waves,” for free here.
