From Trinidad and Tobago, singer-songwriter Kalpee recently released the video for "Miles Away," from his latest EP, Home.

Commenting on the song, Kalpee states, "Musically I wanted it to be real chilled, a fusion of rock, pop and reggae. Something that you could easily head bop to, but that still makes you feel like taking a drive down North Coast Road (In Trinidad) on an evening at sunset time."

Full of cool tropical textures, "Miles Away" offers nostalgic tones over an infectious beat. "It don't really matter where I'm at / Though I'm miles away, miles away / Can nobody take away the weight of my back / When I'm miles away, miles away."
