You might have noticed from her press photo K. Flay is in an extremely, happy mood. What you will not know is that coincidently so am I, after listening to “Sister” her latest release. The new track has certainly brought, a big smile to my face because it has a great message about sisterhood. But more especially because it is lit up with a buzzy electronic pop groove. I was kinda surprised by this track as it is quite different from anything I’ve heard by her before. She is better known as a hip hop and alternative artist, but maybe the tide started to turn towards bringing in a more prominent synth element when K. Flay recently guested on the Robert DeLong single “Favorite Color Is Blue“?
The Illinois born-and-raised artist speaks on what her interpretation of sisterhood is and her inspiration behind the song:
“Being a sister isn’t about gender or DNA. It’s about unselfconscious love. About saying I’M HERE, I LOVE YOU, IT’S OK TO BE YOURSELF, and hearing those words echoed back. Not because you asked for them, but because they’re true. Girls are sisters and boys are sisters. Dads are sisters to their sons. Mothers sisters to their mothers too.”
In essence, the message carried in the lyrics is about having our friends and families back always. The song evokes a voluminous wave of love and is definitely, food for thought during this month of Pride celebrations. As yet, the track acts as a standalone synth embraced effort lifted off K. Flay’s upcoming album “Solutions“. In more ways than before the long player promises to be a pretty potent mix of eclectic styles and genres.
