FRESH: ‘Crave’ – Kiesza

Kiesza releases “Crave”!

‘Electro-pop maven’ (The Fader) Kiesza continues her comeback with the release of new pop anthem “Crave” via her own label Zebra Spirit Tribe. Produced by Electric, the upbeat funky Off The Wall-tinged single is the next instalment from her long-awaited second album set for release this year. This follows recent critically acclaimed singles “You’re The Best”, “When Boys Cry” and “All Of The Feelings”.

Kiesza says “This is one of my favourite songs of my career. The energy just hits right way, right from the very first chord and carries you with it right through to the end. It’s so fun to sing and I’m honestly so happy that this song exists. I’ll be proud to sing this one forever”. Since the release of her 2014 chart topping smash “Hideaway” and one million+ selling debut album, “Sound Of A Woman” (which saw her top charts globally), Kiesza was forced to take a two year hiatus after a life-changing car crash and head trauma rendered her incapable of writing/recording music, performing live and potentially ever walking again.

Having essentially self-isolated for many months following the traumatic crash, Kiesza survived and emerged stronger than ever, after being both housebound and bedbound, with no idea of when she might recover. This experience has given her a unique perspective into living in isolation and uncertainty, which many of her fans are now having to do across the globe. Aware of the importance of positive energy during these times, this week Kiesza released a quarantined-inspired music video for “All Of The Feelings”, whist in isolation in Canada.

Capturing her new found strength, self-expression and determination, the stunning isolation video sees Kiezsa bring her charisma and trademark dance moves to the fore… “obviously when you are in isolation you dance around your house in spandex”. Kiesza is firmly back in business as she returns as an independent musician, retaking her rightful place in the electro-pop scene. 2020 is set to be the year that the “larger-than-life” (PAPER) singer-songwriter fully emerges as an artist reborn, with new songs and a fresh perspective on the future.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
