Until now, we’ve only known kaya through her SoundCloud and Tumblr accounts. For a while it was difficult to find a picture of her, leaving us to focus on her music—fragile, fractured lullabies delivered over delicate production, sometimes electronic-based (“Untitled”), sometimes just simple piano (“i dont know what i’m doing anymore”).
This Friday, kaya is emerging from the Internet for her first show, and later this month she will release the Lux EP on SoundCloud, followed by an official release on Future Gods in early 2016. “Shiver,” produced by TOBIAS, is our first taste of Lux, and it’s everything we could have hoped for and more.
Let kaya enchant you with “Shiver” below, and catch her at 6pm at our CMJ show in partnership with Cymbal and Terrible Records. The show goes down at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn on Friday and the lineup includes Porches, Le1f, Deradoorian, Empress Of, Okay Kaya, and more. Full details here.
