Multi-instrumentalist and all-round creative force Webmoms, returns this February with an organic, nuanced piece of neo-soul that showcases his unique production style. Built on the foundation of Webmoms’ (Real name Karum Cooper) outstanding guitar-playing ability, the track builds to a sultry, sun-drenched afternoon soul anthem. Featuring the lush vocals of Sukie, it’s a gorgeously laid-back cut.
The brainchild of Cornwall-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Karum Cooper, Webmoms is a project rich in influences across the musical spectrum. A music obsessive and multi-talented artist, Cooper’s journey to date has provided him with the tools for an outstanding solo career. He first carved his name into the industry as the guitarist for critically acclaimed alt-rock band Hypophora. Aside from touring across the UK and Europe, the band were featured by the likes of Dork, Kerrang!, Upset, BBC Introducing and plenty more. He soon found his way to drumming for prog-rock outfit For The Oracle and playing bass for Pop sensation Daisy Clark.

Soon, he wanted to explore his own artistic journey which he launched last year with the ‘Ruchikar’ EP. His nuanced and original take on Lo-Fi Hip Hop and Soul received critical support from the likes of Complex UK, Stamp The Wax and Magnetic Magazine. Across Spotify, the EP was also supported on The Best of Fresh Finds and Fresh Finds ‘The Wave’ as well as by influential tastemakers College Music. The new single shows the Cornwall-based artist showcasing his versatility, stepping away from his Hip-Hop style with a mellow slow-jam. Speaking on the new single, he states
"Rice & Potatoes is a rather sombre and melancholic cut that never made it to my first EP 'Ruchikar', but was created around the same time. I felt like it reflects the solemn and sober feelings of winter 2020/21, a sense of disorientation and confusion more so than anything. The track was originally intended as an instrumental release but Sukie dropped her debut EP late Summer last year, and I was bowled over, I knew I had to get her involved with a track. Her voice is so delicate and fragile so it suited this song perfectly"
