In okay Kaya songs, her world looks a lot like ours - Netflix, jetlag, Vegan Peanut Butter and Chocolate ice cream, lonely bowls of Ra men, Diet trends. But unlike ours, each of these vibrates and shimmers with deeper, darker meaning, with existential Dread and desire for understanding. Through norwegian-raised new Yorker kaya's dreamy soft-focus lens, the language of Twitter memes becomes modernist poetry as her breathy contralto voice sings lines like, "if you don't love me at my guttural sound, you don't Deserve me at my guttural sound." This is Sade for nihilists. On the opening track of her new record, watch this Liquid pour itself, out on January 24, 2020, from jagjaguwar, she sings, "I used to fight the feeling, always let it win." as she transforms these feelings, defeats, and victories into songs, the lyrics often involve pools of Sweat, oceans, and other forms of wetness.
