Her creativity takes its inspiration from old romantic French movies and performances by Serge Gainsbourg…Songs by Nina Simone and Amy Winehouse…The femininity of Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren…The elegant sophistication of Antonio Marras and Rocco Barocco’s fashion design…Renaissance and Surrealist art…Klimt’s gilded paintings and Degas’s dancers…the classical ballet and poetry of the 20th century…The tenderness of falling leaves…The soft brilliance of sunsets.
If you don’t know yet: KAIYA is a new awesome indie-pop artist based in New York.
She was born in a small town in mysterious and authentic Ukraine and grew up in the European fashion world modeling professionally in Paris, Tokyo, and then finally in New York. She’s been living in Brooklyn since 2007, working in fashion, music and fine arts.
Since 2016 KAIYA has been working on some cool music with her fellow Brooklynite, electronic artist, a singer & producer named ÅMBE aka Masha Brodskaya. As a result of this collaboration in April 2017 they released KAIYA’s debut single “GAMES” on ADIM Records, that was co-produced by a Grammy-winning producer ADMRL aka Brian Forbes. It was a perfect combination of songwriting sensibilities alongside crisp & fresh electronic beats. The single got great feedback from both, audience and music blogs.
Two months later, in June KAIYA released her “GAMES” Remix – a nice electronic-lounge vibe, with an added layer of ethereal vocal production. At the beginning on 2018 her new single “GIMME” came out to the world. Both singles were followed by beautiful lyric videos.
KAIYA’s sound is a soulful blend of modern minimalisms with a tasteful vintage. Her songs and videos have been featured in different music magazines and blogs in the US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, and Russia. Her songs have been aired on various radio stations in Canada, Ireland, Australia, UK, as well as in the US. KAIYA’s debut EP is coming out early fall.
KAIYA is on radio rotation with the tracks – “Gimme” and “Games”
