Word after word we disagree Always in trouble for how we feel Feeling exposed by nothingness If there ain't much room for second guesses Whether we do whether we don't Life's a reflection of how we've grown Simple expressions of happiness Can turn these tears to gold How could I persuade you Even if we had no time Breaking bad is easy If we never try, oh no Never wished to change you Even if it meant goodbye Life was never breezy 'Till we made it shine More insecurities on our way The unforeseeable into play Don't let the magic forsake itself If there ain't no cure to lift the spell Maybe we will maybe we won’t Maybe agree that our minds are blown Look at the stars and begin to see All that matters in between How could I persuade you Even if we had no time Breaking bad is easy If we never try, oh no Never wished to change you Even if it meant goodbye Life was never breezy 'Till we made it shine Interlude How could I persuade you Even if we had no time Breaking bad is easy If we never try, oh no Never wished to change you (Never wish to change) Even if it meant goodbye (Meant goodbye) Life was never breezy ('Till we made it) 'Till we made it shine Make it shine Make it shine 'Till we made, 'till we made it shine Oooh ooh ooh

about

Hot on the heels of their Mediterranean flavoured EP, Scirocco, Kraak & Smaak follows in close succession with their new single—Persuade You.
With a stellar vocal performance by K&S mainstay and touring vocalist IVAR, Persuade You is an orchestral groover reminiscent of those Motown and Stax Records heydays.

Like Isaac Hayes and Jungle crossing each other on an intersection, Persuade You feels like the best of both worlds; a modern production rooted firmly in traditional techniques and flavours.
IVAR’s performance has a certain weight and heft to it, brilliantly narrating the story of a relationship turned one-sided. Persuading someone shouldn’t really fit in a healthy relationship, but we’ve all crossed that bridge at some point; projecting something on someone, that just isn’t there.

Even though the subject matter feels quite dramatic, at the same time the song has sparkle and air to it; strings, soulful live drums, and slick guitars trade places resulting in a wonderful opera of blazing Funk injected with a healthy dose of groovy Soul.

The ever-evolving Kraak & Smaak sound is something we’ve come to admire, but never take for granted. Diligently waiting where they will take us next.
