Until We Leave From Here (feat. Chelsey Boy) by Kai Tak

Darkenin Heart

Kai Tak's new single Until We Leave From Here featuring Chelsey Boy is part of the album Designed In Heaven Made In Hong Kong, which will be released on June 21st, 2024 by à La Carte Records. The track is a melodic indie pop song with a dreamy, atmospheric tone.

Chelsey comments on the song: "This song started as a visual journey, with Chris showing me a photo from "City of Darkness : Life In Kowloon Walled City," a book by Greg Girard and Ian Lambot that explored Hong Kong's notorious city within a city. The photo depicted kids playing on the dense rooftops of the Walled City, amidst this maze of telephone wires. I was totally transported to this bygone era, and knew this song had to reflect that photo’s intersection of history, urban culture and human resilience. Every song on this album tells a story and it’s been such a privilege collaborating with Chris on it and learning more about the city he once called home."

Kai Tak's Chris King explains: "I've always been fascinated by the phenomenon of how much more generous and tight-knit communities that deal with poverty are compared to the selfishness, distance and lack of empathy that you always feel in communities of affluence. No place exemplified this better than Kowloon Walled City, and while it may have seemed dangerous, scary, or depressing to outsiders, it had a distinct spirit of hopefulness and togetherness that still inspires me to this day. The Walled City was the most densely populated place on the planet. It was also located right by the old Kai Tak airport, and the planes would fly right over it as they made their landing approach, and having watched countless planes fly into Kai Tak as a kid, I wanted to capture that feeling as well."
