You know we're all about showcasing the incredible and diverse talent in the AP community. New York-based Swedish singer/songwriter/producer Kissey shared a set of new tracks and snippets, freely expressing her creativity and taking the listener to deep, and sometimes dark places.
"I was listening to a lot of oldschool/acid house like Mr Fingers, Frankie Knuckles and old 80's songs like Peter Gabriel's 'Sledgehammer' ", she tells us. "And when I sat down in the studio I found myself drawn to wanting to hear things that were more direct and simple... carried by the drums and bass, [songs that] had a more classic verse/chorus melody on top in the vocals."
She wrote and produced all the tracks below, including single 'Cry'. " 'Cry' is all about release and recognizing that you are in a situation that you can't get out of. I find it very pretty and dark. The video is an unofficial one that I created for the track in my bedroom. (...)
These last couple of years I have been focusing on learning how to produce and now I feel I've come to a point where I can share them with you, to show where i am in my "soundscape" and life."
