‘Expectations’ is a hugely personal story, inspired by broken-hearted emotions after a relationship fell apart. Reflections on what went wrong and expectations of better things to come are wrapped up in shimmering pop-production, giving hope for everyone with a beating heart.
The song is the first taste of new music from I Am Karate since the release of their critically acclaimed single ‘Swayze’ in 2016. Its release saw them receive huge praise from the likes of The Times, The Guardian and many more.
Now their new release is a playlist feature in-store at UK high street brands across the country, ‘Expectations’ is already proving to be as infectious as their previous hit.
“Dark, shiny electropop from the Swedish duo — think Robyn produced by James Blake.” – The Times
“I Am Karate martial their artistry with aplomb. They will chop your head off, in the nicest possible way, with their marvellously maudlin and mordantly mellow mid-tempo melodies.” – The Guardian
"Your new favourite duo" – The 405
