Under the influence of icons such as Joni Mitchell, Californian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist KAiA always pours her unfiltered soul into her singles to allow her listeners to recognise intimate thoughts which reverberate late at night but are rarely ever spoken.
With her latest single “Summer is for Lovers”, you’ll find yourself commending the candid resilience she shares through her melancholy-tinged poetically meta lyricism. The pensive lovelorn air evades the light sun-kissed instrumental arrangement which features innocent ukulele strums around full-bodied accordant acoustic guitar tones. Summer is for Lovers is powerful enough to throw you right back to your teenage heartbreak while recognising the beauty and fragility within it. If that’s not the ultimate testament of an incredible artist, I don’t know what is.
You can check out Summer is for Lovers via Spotify.
