Kiiara - Gold
Recently, I discovered Kiiara with a random youtube playlist was playing in the background. As soon as I heard 'Gold', I had to immediately stop what I was doing to listen in. With my excitement for the upcoming Flume album, I've been browsing chill out electronica and this song definitely fell into my wheelhouse. The heavy bass and chopped up sampling is great and the 'Gold' is perfect match of indie roots with pop sensibilities. Also, the lyrics of the song are catchy and easy to sing, despite being nonsensical.
The 21 year old Illinois native released her first single 'Gold' with her 6 track EP 'Low Kii Savage'. At this point Kiiara is still new, but 'Gold' has already reached international audiences getting platinum sales in Australia. Signed by Atlantic and with over 5 million views on this single, it's safe to say that we will be seeing Kiiara again soon.
