Kiiara – Gold Review
Music has been around for a long time now but in time, we fail to realize how important: vocals and tune are for a music. As we are progressing into 2000’s, the auto tune has played an important part on how music is seen entirely. The new pop prodigy from Illinois; Kiiara, is out with the release of her debut single Gold.
Even though the 21 year old singer is employed in a hardware store. She doesn’t quit from working on unique ideas to make the listener go like ‘What on earth was that’. She incorporates that, in her style of music which we would come to call a mixture of trap and electro-pop.
The song was released on October 26, 2015, as her debut single for her extended play (EP) Low Ki Savage under Atlantic Records and Warner Music Group. Written by herself David Singer-Vine. The track is positioned at no.79 on the Canadian Hot 100 and No. 64 on the US Hot 100 charts. The track saw moderate success in remaining markets of Europe, staying in the latter ends of their 100 charts.
The real deal to be talked about is Aria Charts Australia, Gold topped out at No.5. An amazing feat from someone so young in her career. Gold also sold more than 140000 copies in Australia. Which is four times as much to nearest competitor region. Aussies have a thing for Kiiara I guess.
Talking about the single, Kiiara creates a unique blend of music, which is both awfully displeasing and annoying. Not only is it difficult to understand in between the jerky music, vocals with pauses. It almost sounds like a normal song was recorded with hiccups and accelerated 2xtimes!
The only aspect I can come to now is the lyrics, a same old topic, talked about a girl’s admiration to guy and requesting him to never let go, And if you love me, love me but you never let me go. When the roof was on fire, you never let me know. I am assuming there was a rift or some sorts of tensions between the two half way between the lyrics.
The chorus however is sung to perfection with Kiiara’s vocals setting in between the tune surprisingly well. Only she could pull it off. Isn’t that so?
Let’s see where the artist goes. She sure has kept us in the list of the people, anticipating what’s next from her. She sure has a long way to go.
