Happy 2015, folks – I sincerely hope you had an awesome start.

Let’s kick back and enjoy our first under-the-radar news post of the year – Kuma’s “Falling For Somebody New”, a re-imagining of the talented Kim Vallido’s “Do I Wanna Know?”, itself, a mellow piano rework of the gloomy Arctic Monkeys’ tune.

The rendition comes courtesy of Jerome Jose, an L.A based artist operating under the moniker kuma. With “Falling For Somebody New”, Jose easily proves why, at 19, he’s among the rising stars of the underground electric scene.

The tune flows with class, kuma delivering pounding beats laced over flickering synths and a pulsing piano, all of which provide the electric backdrop to Kim Vallido’s honeyed vocals. Definitely worth a listen.

Check out Kim Vallido here. Listen to more Kuma here.
