Druv Kent is a BBC Radio 2 playlisted, chart-topping, and award-winning independent artist from Asia who makes contemporary folk-pop music infused with a sense of modern global sounds from the West enmeshed with his mystic poetic lyrics from the land of his birth, India.
Druv has topped the World Indie Music charts, the Euro Indie Music charts, been on the US Top 20, is an award-winning live performer and among the world’s leading songwriters, in both English & Hindi. He burst on the scene in 2015 becoming the 1st Asia-based artist supported in 20 years by BBC Radio 2.
Kent’s songwriting strength garnered the attention of the world’s leading record producers allowing him, despite being an indie musician, to create his unique folk-pop-fusion music style combining contemporary Western folk-pop with English lyrics inspired by the Sufi mystics of his native India.
“Wanna Love Again” is the 2nd song from Kent’s forthcoming EP “Love in F#”, with the first single being the smash “Magaresa (Runaway)”, currently on the Top 10 of the World Indie Charts as well as the Euro Indie Charts. His last release Don’t Burn Away was #1 on the World Indie Music Charts and on the US Top 20.
In “Wanna Love Again”, Kent has collaborated with pioneering Swedish record producer Tony Malm (Eric Saade, Emma Anderson, Lambretta) to create an amazing pop track. From its first sounds “Wanna Love Again” bubbles with the intensity of a pounding heart and builds to a soaring chorus crescendo. The visual lyrics and smoldering vocals are sharply contrasted by the joyful chimes of guitars in the chorus celebrating love … only to end with the inscrutable hope which is … “I wanna love again”. The song’s classic style of songwriting is catapulted to world-class pop standards by its amazing polish and production. The track will leave you tapping your feet and coming back for more.
The song’s music video – directed by long-time Kent collaborator TED Fellow Puneet Rakheja – mesmerizingly captures the feeling of falling deeply in love … and wanting to experience that feeling again.
Like its predecessor “Magaresa (Runaway)” which became a dance anthem, this song too has the potential of going viral, including on Instagram and TikTok.
“Love in F#” is a 5-song EP of which “Wanna Love Again” is the 2nd release. This will be Kent’s 4th EP. After his highly acclaimed debut “About Time” album in 2015, Kent released his very successful 2-song Hindi EP in 2019 and his landmark 5-song “Don’t Burn Away” EP in 2020.
